The Virgin adoring the host
Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres. 1854
Incarnation of maternity and the purity of the feminine ideal, of Christian love and religious fervor, the image of the Virgin was one of the Catholic themes most studied by the painter. Inspired by Raphael but also by other Renaissance painters, these virgins unite elegance, sensuality and femininity with faith, spirituality and virginity.
