MADONNAS...the ideal type of women in earlier times, endearing, devoted, mourning, glorified by motherhood! I spend several weeks in the summer each year in Tuscany where I am confronted with enchanting paintings of the Madonna in every church. When I leave the churches I see women everywhere with faces that are astonishingly similar to the faces of the Madonna. Should the qualities of the Madonna still exist in modern women? Are they perhaps deeply embedded in feminine feeling? It is fascinating to see the way in which the modern faces are so similar to the faces of the Madonna painted hundreds of years ago.
