In light of this Christmas season I'm posting some of the most famous historic paintings of one of my favorite periods of art, the #Baroque period, which focused in depth on religious matters using darker color schemes. Never forget what is truly important and truly beautiful in life. Count your blessings for we have so many! ❤ Enjoy learning:
