Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem, from a Mir’at al-quds of Father Jerome Xavier (Spanish, 1549-1617), 1602-1604. Since the author of this book on the life of Christ did not specify the kind of animal that carried the heavily pregnant Mary to Bethlehem, the artist depicted her on a camel, strung with bells. He effectively conveys the harshness and discomfort of the journey by painting trees bending to wind, setting the travelers among rocky outcroppings, and surrounding her with strange men. Wearing a green coat, her husband Joseph carries a sword over his shoulder, suggesting that he

The Annunciation, from a Mir’at al-quds of Father Jerome Xavier (Spanish, 1549-1617), 1602-1604. The Annunciation is a familiar scene in European Renaissance and Baroque art that is here interpreted by a painter in a Mughal workshop. Mary had been praying before the arrival of the angel Gabriel. She gazes at him as he kneels reverently and informs her that she will bear the son of God. His wings, forced within the boundary line of the painting field, have been polychromed to convey a mystical impression that identifies him as an otherworldly being. The crown held over Mary’s head
