Song of Angels is a religious art piece by William Bouguereau that features Mary and the baby Jesus being serenaded by beautiful celestial angels. Mary and the baby Jesus appear to be asleep as three lovely angels in white garb are playing their instruments and keeping a watchful eye on the baby Jesus and his mother. Bouguereau’s use of deep vivid colors along with his exquisite detail make this religious artwork appear both realistic and surreal.

The cherubic baby Jesus is brought to the foreground of this painting through the contrast of his light skin against the deep blue color of Mary’s robe. Song of Angels gives us a sense of tranquility as we appreciate the beauty of the celestial beings visiting Mary and the baby Jesus and as we can imagine how beautiful their heavenly music sounds.

Madonna and Child by Jason Jenicke, Mary and Baby Jesus

Madonna and Child by Jason Jenicke, Mary and Baby Jesus

This limited edition christian art print by Jason Jenicke beautifully depicts the overwhelming love and joy a mother feels towards her child. The artist’s use of vivid colors that contrast against the dark muted background accentuate Mary and the baby Jesus, and we can see from the shadows on Mary’s face that there is a light shining upon them. While many pictures of the Madonna and Child are quite serious, this religious art piece has a unique playfulness to it, giving us a true feeling of joy as mother and child interact with each other.
