Brighten your day with this charming handmade painting of the Virgen de la Leche or Nursing Madonna.

Virgen dela Leche, translatable into English as “Nursing Madonna” or “Our Lady of the Milk”, was a popular depiction of the Tuscan art school in the Medieval and Renaissance period, showing the Virgin Mother breastfeeding the baby Jesus. This style of depiction started disappearing in the later Renaissance. But this Madonna and Child depiction remains an iconography and popular art form among modern artists of Peru.

The Cuzco School was a Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru (the former capital of the Inca Empire) during the Colonial period, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The tradition and European influence in these paintings originated after the 1534 Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire.

Drawing from the techniques of the past, modern Cuzco paintings executed by local artists are characterized by their use of exclusively religious subjects and the predominance of red, yellow and earth colors. They are also remarkable for their use of gold leaf. They often adapt the topics to depict their native flora and fauna as a backdrop in their works.

This exclusive Peruvian style artwork composition of the Virgen de la Leche or Nursing Madonna will provide you with a wonderful devotional treasure. Buy it now.

NOTE: This painting is not stretched or framed.
