• Butterfly Madonna, probably by Johan Malwael,c. 1410 •
The name comes from the beautiful butterflies buzzing around above (👉3). This picture is something very special:
• It had been heavily painted over and given to the Gemäldegalerie by a parish in 1957 for inspection.
• It is one of the rare very early Burgundian-Dutch paintings that survived the iconoclasts; Jean Malwael was court painter at the Burgundian court.
• It is also one of the earliest paintings on canvas.
Returning from a Maelwael exhibition at the Rijksmuseum, the Madonna hangs next to Jean Fouquet's Etienne Chevalier from the Melun Diptych (👉4).
🌍 Schmetterlingsmadonna, wohl von Johan Malwael, um 1410 •
Der Name kommt von den schönen Schmetterlingen, die oben herum schwirren (👉3). Dieses Bild ist etwas ganz besonderes:
• Es war, heftig übermalt, 1957 der Gemäldegalerie von einer Kirchengemeinde zur Begutachtung gegeben worden.
• Es ist eines der seltenen ganz frühen burgundisch-niederländischen Bilder, die die Bilderstürme überstanden haben; Jean Malwael war Hofmaler am burgundischen Hof.
• Es ist auch eines der frühesten auf Leinwand gemalten Bilder.
Von einer Maelwael-Ausstellung im Rijksmuseum zurückgekehrt, hängt sie wieder neben Jean Fouquets Etienne Chevalier vom Melun Diptychon (👉4).
A few steps away from Campo dei Fiori you find the #PassettodelBiscione . It looks like an ordinary alley from the outside, but when you step inside you see that it’s decorated with frescoes & has an image of the #MadonnaandChild inside.
The history of this passage dates back over 2000 years to the #theatre constructed by #PompeytheGreat . (Julius Caesar was assassinated in a meeting room which formed part of the theatre complex.
Anyway, in medieval times the theatre was built over - although the shape of the theatre is still visible in the surrounding streets. Then the passageway was incorporated into a chapel & decorated. During the 16th Century the chapel became part of the palace of the #Orsini family. The image of the Madonna became famous and was even believed to blink miraculously!
However, the chapel was deconsecrated due to bloodshed & the image moved to another church & the passage became a graffiti-covered alley. However, it has been redecorated & restored in recent years. It’s now one of those Roman surprises that testify to millennia of history. #RomePicDaily
✨NEW WORK ✨ "Madonna and Child" by Megan Knobloch Geilman. "For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6). I love this verse and I love this season and it was my goal to complete this piece before Christmas! Mary, who literally housed the Lord for nine months, who pondered all these things in her heart, is often on my mind at this time of year and I hope this piece honors her. A very special thanks to the @visionofthearts Mother Artist Grant for helping to fund this piece, for the @springvillemuseum for allowing me to shoot in their beautiful step-down Swanson gallery, and my gorgeous model @lindsaybeynon and her baby for showing up right at bed time and sitting like angels.

Let,s say that i Have my theories, i can only say This! And that i have not among
FRIENDS priests or nuns, they didn t touch my heart at all when i was child
For several reasons,
i don t have simpaty above all' for the high people in charge( vescovi, cardinali) in Church establishment, and i don t believe in tales. ...but it,s a LONG speech ...and this is NOT the place for sharing...
