Holy Mary, on her way to visit her mother, St. Ann,
pauses to gather lilies.

Jerzy Harasymowicz, Madonna z Kruzlowej

 

The color green, associated with growth and new life, dominates this painting. The Madonna is depicted as a young woman, wearing a simple green dress decorated with green flowers. As she moves freely through this verdant scene, she is attracted to the lily, sign of purity.
