Christmas Art ~Arthur Hughes



"The Nativity"
Carefully and thoughtfully, Mary is wrapping Jesus in swaddling clothes.


"A Christmas Carol at Bracken Dene"
Wouldn't you just love to be sitting across from these merry children, listening to them chatter and coo and play and sing? I sure Mr. Hughes must have enjoyed painting them; the picture surely reflects it.

If you've enjoyed this little sampling of Arthur Hughes, English pre-Raphaelite painter, you might take a look at an online gallery here.
