Anne Redpath

Madonna from Mexico

About this artwork

This painting is one of several images featuring religious iconography which Redpath painted towards the end of her career. This work was completed just two years before she died. The artist made visits to Portugal and Venice in her later years and was particularly attracted to the exotic, Baroque ornament of the Catholic Church interiors, many of which she painted with rich, earthy tones. This painting is a typical example of her later paintings in which she explored a semi-abstract, impasto style, punctuated with accents of bright colour.
