Marriage of Joseph and Mary

The Gospel of St. Luke tells us that Mary was “betrothed to a man of the house of David, named Joseph.” The painting of the wedding of Mary therefore is based on this biblical quote and, in the freedom of expression that belongs to painting and art in general, the author offers us a solemn way to look at this meeting of the generous and faithful love Mary shares with Joseph, consecrated in the dignity of marriage. On the base of an authentic human love, chosen and lived with fidelity, the mystery of divine life and salvation that God offers to humanity is introduced.
