Striking impression

This 16th century woodcut on paper at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach. Called "St. Anne and the Virgin with Child," it's part of a new exhibition called "Striking Impressions: European Prints from the Museum Collection," assembled by interns at the museum.

The woodcut, by Lucas Cranach of Wittenberg, Germany, is among more than 35 religious-themed pieces by Italian, French, Dutch and Flemish masters dating from 1500 to 1900 in the permanent collection at the museum.

I’ve added the picture to my my standing online gallery, Religion in Pictures, which includes, architecture, statuary, stained glass and other artworks. To see the whole gallery, click here.
