    Not one of the best paintings I’ve ever seen…

    Amen to THAT!
    -
    If we take the three figure as models (not the Holy Family), the kid’s got his Dad’s eyes, which is unfortunate, since it looks like Dad needs them.

    This painting is so poorly executed, it might just be a sin.

    Gives a whole new meaning to the word “Gothic art.”

    The baby is holding up a finger to say, “Wait a minute, let’s discuss this first!”

    Those swaddling clothes get more revealing each year.

    They got the family deal on dentistry. Today was fillings on the upper left side of the mouth. That Xylocaine takes a while to wear off.

    That sure looks like a family living in the Levant 2000 years ago!

    Click-to-enlarge image, of the full painting, can be found here, or here. Smaller enlargement, of this detail image, can be found at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    Holy Family with an Angel (links show Wikipedia pages; I guess to make his pseudo-title work, Mr. Melcher removed the Angel) isn’t among the masterpieces shown online by its current-location. The artist’s Wikipedia page (Google translated German Wikipedia page may have more) and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).

    Third, of the 4 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.
