Example: Madonna of Humility, ca. 1410, by Don Lorenzo Monaco

The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art did a smart, simple thing for the Christmas season the other day — small but smart and good for art…the smaller idea was aimed at the media, which is always in search of good images. On Dec. 15 — enough time for planning — the PR department sent out an email with the subject line “Need Christmas Art?” and attaching a PDF listing of all the nativity scenes it holds in its collection for which it had high-res images: a dozen in all.
