My favorite pieta

Everytime I see this painting it stops me and I have to study it. The artist did a stunning job when he painted the look of sorrow and resignation on Mary's face as she finally gets to holds her precious Son.

That is a great painting, Dymphna, and thanks ever so much! I like Bouguereau, and this is the best of his I've ever seen. We have one in the Minneapolis Institute, I think it's titled "La Bohème."
