"Birth of Christ"

Always when the Christmas holiday nears I love to post pictures of the many different artists and their representations of Christ's birth.

This original painting is by Italian born Carlo Saraceni and was painted in 1610. He lived from 1579 - 1620. The location is at the Residenzgalerie - art gallery in the Alte Residenz, Salzburg, Austria.

I think this is one of my absolute favorite paintings.

It has always been my wish to see this in person. You never know....
