Have A Merry, Merry Christmas

At this time of the year, when I take a few days off to celebrate Christmas with my family, I like to leave a painting that captures the moment. This year, it is Botticelli’s Mystic Nativity, 1500c. 1475, which is in the collection of the National Gallery, London.* I wish all my readers a very happy Christmastime.


* Please see comments below — I got my Botticelli’s mixed up!

    You have made my Christmastime happier with all the Nativity gifts you have sent.

  2. Happy Christmas, but the present illustration is not Botticelli’s Mystic Nativity!

  3. Regardless – have a good break!
