Today is the feast of St Luke the Evangelist and hence an excuse to post this painting of him by El Greco.
St Luke is shown as an artist with picture of the Virgin and Child. He is, of course, often claimed to be the painter of a portrait of Our Lady, and as the author of his Gospel is, of course, the creator of a portrait of her in words. This painting has graced the front of the recent edition of Magnificat.
El Greco, circa 1605
