 Portrays the life of the mother of Christ with nearly 100 full-page, color reproductions of the Virgin’s face as depicted by the world’s greatest artists from the twelfth century to the present. These compelling images are accompanied by selections from early to modern sacred and secular texts. Viewed together in this unique pictorial narrative, the life-sized portraits of Mary illuminate her dual nature as virgin and mother, mortal woman and immortal Queen of Heaven with a rare vitality, immediacy, and intensity that other collections lack.
