Carlo Crivelli: Madonna and Child Holiday Cards
Send warm winter wishes to your loved ones with our Christmas cards featuring an image of a remarkably preserved painting (ca. 1480) by Carlo Crivelli (Italian, active by 1457–died 1494/95), who renders this perennial subject with exquisite colors and detailing. A doll-faced Virgin Mary is represented beneath boughs of apples symbolizing sin and a cucumber referencing redemption. The fly and goldfinch are likewise emblems of evil and salvation, respectively. The precision of the background may have been influenced by the Flemish style.
Please note that our holiday cards reproduce original works of art, some of which include visual artifacts and imperfections.
