PRESENTATION in the TEMPLE
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI


PRESENTATION in the TEMPLE


In this drawing, Simeon holds the Christ Child; St. Joseph, the Blessed Virgin (who holds the sacrificial doves) and the prophetess Anna stand nearby. The altar has images of Moses and Elijah on it, representing the Law and the Prophets.

In the border are drawn twelve patriarchs and ten scenes from the infancy of Christ: the Annunciation, the Visitation, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, the Nativity of Christ, the Annunciation to the Shepherds, the Circumcision of Christ, the Adoration of the Magi, the Flight into Egypt, the Massacre of the Innocents and the Fall of the Idols of Hermopolis.The four Major Prophets (Jeremiah, Daniel, Isaiah and Ezekiel) appear in the corners.

15th century panel paintings, tapestries and prints heavily influenced this drawing. Specific artists whose work I studied when drawing it include Johann Koerbecke and Martin Schongauer.
