Description:
Virgin Mary; Christ

Label Text:
The artist’s belief in divine presence, intercession, and God’s patronage to Russia is evident in this lithograph, where galloping soldiers come to an awed halt before the overpowering vision of the Blessed Virgin with Christ, their military mission blessed by the Son of God. Goncharova’s depiction of the Virgin Mary and the infant reflects the influence of traditional Russian iconography and emphasizes her deep connection with religious and folk art.
