NMWA’s ground-breaking exhibition Picturing Mary: Woman, Mother, Idea examines the concept of womanhood represented by the Virgin Mary and the power her image has exerted through time. Iconic and devotional, and also filled with social and political significance, the image of the Virgin Mary shaped Western art from the 6th to the 18th century.
