El Greco The Virgin and Child with St. Martina and St. Agnes photo print. Oil painting on canvas circa 1599. El Greco was a master of religious painting whose work frequently featured the Virgin Mary. This Madonna and Child painting is one of his most charming and complex. The Virgin sits holding baby Jesus in her lap as two angels gaze on. Saint Martina and Saint Agnes stand below, one holding a lamb, the other stroking the head of a gentle lion. The work features the silky employment of red, gold, blue, pink and yellow to provide a vibrant sense of radiance and motion. A great gift for lovers of El Greco, the Virgin Mary, religious painting, and devotional works.
