1. Analysis of Subject:
Loving mother. Devoted wife. Ideal woman. Queen of paradise.
That’s is a subject of this piece of art I’ve seen at Lac-Ma museum. Going deep
into the subject of this artwork let us know about praise the woman who has
made much of the sacrifices for many in the 17th century. Throughout the
seventeenth century, the Virgin’s reputation spread. For example, she is said
to have miraculously prevented the floods in 1629, one of the worst natural
disasters in the history of Mexico City and she’s been helping to faded a major
infectious disease was destroyed the population of the capital between 1736-37.
As such, Guadalupe has been becoming is one of Spain’s most revered celebrity
images spread beyond the confines.
This painting from Mexico’s artist has been illustrating
the Virgin of Guadalupe in 17th-century, he was focused on the standard
speeches on the subject: The Virgin stands on the top of the crescent moon,
surrounded by light rays and surrounded by a Mandorla flowers made a flower.
Inside this artwork, also there is four circle surrounds this artwork, it’s
located in four corners, each one represents the Virgin’s appearing. The virgin
is placed in the center of the piece of art, the artist has a great idea about
put in along the artwork a lot of flowers around the Virgin.
Manuel de Arellano has painted the
greatest artwork with harmonic context and expressing all the respect and
devotion of the Virgin in the 17th century. He gave the flower in the artwork
to let everyone knew she was beautiful and greatness. He did a nice job in the
context of this art.
The painting clearly shows the
featured icon of the woman. This is the beautiful symbol of the woman has made
a lot of contributions and help all people overcome difficulties. The slow
shift from local people to revered symbols in the world. Additional, it shows
us gentle expressions and always help, protect people from the Virgin. Helping
people out with difficulties despite the most difficult circumstances. She has
been helping to restore the population of Mexico. Every time she’s been
appearing to bring in the joy and to make the sadness left out the people.
That’s beautiful Iconography of the Virgin.
Overall, for the content of this artwork of Manuel de
Arellano, I think there is no words can able to express a deep, the magic
behind the content of this painting. Because it is not a normal piece of art,
it contains the miraculous and the sacred in the back. As results, people in
the 17th century and especially people today believe in faith. Because of that,
it will bring to the human a luck and more energy of power to overcome all
The main theme of this artwork is
the vivid image of a powerful and generous woman. Show off the worship of
people all over the world with the Virgin. It has become a beautiful symbol for
the religion. Everyone is worshiping the Virgin in their home or car.
This artwork is interesting to me
because it brings to me a luck and let me know everything about the Virgin lofty.
As real reflection from myself, I don’t even know everything behind this
artwork as the picture the Virgin, even though I have one picture the Virgin in
my house including the Virgin statue, but about history, where was it born and
who did it. I really don’t know. Right now, I have a lot of information and
experience about this beautiful artwork. Thank you for making an opportunity to
visit a museum and exploring it. That so amazing time and beautiful artwork.
