I was checking out some images of Jesus when he was a baby. (Don’t freak out – I am a “Post-Thanksgiving Christmas” person, so this is not a Christmas post.) when I stumbled across a remarkable Tumblr feed. I’m not going to share the feed, because some of it is not appropriate for decent people – like you – but I did swipe a few images.
It seems that artists during the Renaissance took a lot of creative license in portraying the young Jesus. At least I hope these are all inaccurate. With no further ado, or commentary, here are some Renaissance paintings featuring baby Jesus. Enjoy!
