I remember this picture from my childhood. The Catholic church was so full of imagery. It made lasting impression on my mind. As a little girl I would be sitting in church, actively looking at the finery and the statues and the paintings. It did not detract from my love of God instead it helped me make it more relevant to my life, it made it more real rather then some abstract thought.

Carl Bloch, The Visitation

What is not to love about this picture? I saw pictures like this all the time. It shows joy, it's historical and it has an element of holiness to it.
