Scholarly Commentary


DGR projected this picture around 1871 but never carried it out. His note describing the conception of the picture is interesting: “To paint Virgin & Child — child climbs up mother's bosom. Angels behind might hold branches of the Tree of Life & Tree of Knowledge. In distance might be seen Eden & flaming sword.”
