Description

James M. Rosen pays homage to the Masters with this portrait. Rosen distills the moment to its essence, color, planes and light. The details of the Madonna, the baby Jesus and two angels are left to the imagination of the viewer.

The subject of this composition is now universal and classic and has been the subect of countless artists, trained and untrained, over the centuries. For many viewers, the more time you spend with a Rosen painting, the more the content comes into focus, but the viewer has to be involved.

This painting from from the collection of now deceased Santa Rosa, California collectors Robert and Evelyn McAleece.
