Immaculate Conception by Bartolome Esteban Murillo

I posted a similar picture four years ago, but this is a favorite subject of Murillo. Or rather, I should say, this is a favorite subject of his wealthy Spanish patrons.

This is one of my favorite versions. I mentioned last year that Peter Paul Rubens portrays the Virgin as voluptuous woman as opposed to a young girl. I suppose, when I wrote that line, I had this image in mind.
