Daniel Mitsui  ~  Religious Drawings  ~  Virgin & Child



This is an ink drawing on a 5" × 7" piece of Bristol board. I drew it using fine-tipped pens; calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes; and brass leaf.

The original was created on private commission.

I based the central image of the Blessed Virgin and the Christ Child on a picture in a 12th century Sicilian illuminated manuscript, done in a Byzantine style. The decorative elements were inspired by 19th century art from both England and Japan.

The original drawing included a personalized inscription; the decorative plum branch just below the main image was drawn on a separate piece of paper and edited into the print file in its place.

An open-edition giclée print of this drawing is available for $33. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address.
