Description

These National Gallery of Art holiday cards depict a detail from The Rest on the Flight into Egypt (c. 1510) by Gerard David. The inside greeting reads: "Blessed Christmas, Joyous New Year." The Rest on the Flight into Egypt is one of Gerard David's loveliest and most peaceful creations. The Madonna and Child are centrally placed, while receding diagonals and alternating bands of light and dark skillfully lead back into the landscape and harmoniously relate the figures to their surroundings. The predominance of the restful color blue throughout the composition unifies the work.
