Quote of the day: 27 October Mary, with her Maternity, is like a book in which the world can read the Eternal Word, Jesus, the Lord. Saint Raphael Kalinowski Virgin and ChildWilliam Dyce (Scottish, 1806–1864)Oil on plasterNottingham City MuseumsA study of the Virgin Mary facing right, holding Jesus in her right arm, and reading a small red book in her right hand. She wears her light brown hair braided at the back, and has on a red round-necked dress with large sleeves edged in green, with a blue cloak that has slipped to waist level. The child is naked except for a band of white material slung over his left shoulder. The background is a rocky landscape.
