This very peaceful and serene Religious oil painting depicts the Nativity, the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Mary and the baby Jesus are the main focus of this beautiful painting, shown in a manger with shepherds, farm animals and cherubs on the periphery. The thick hardwood board which is mounted in an ornate gilt wood and gesso frame, is slightly warped and is unsigned. There are a few pieces of molding missing on the frame and a few quarter size areas of paint loss in the lower left and bottom of the painting. Please take a moment to enlarge the photos and examine the details up close.
