Q. What did the paintings mean in the fifteenth century?

A.  The paintings in this exhibition were intended to glorify the Virgin and inspire devotion. The inclusion of religious figures in recognizably contemporary settings encourage viewers to identify more closely with Mary. In each case, the details--and their related symbolic meanings--add layers of complexity to the overall message of each work.
