Raphael’s The Madonna surrounded by holly leaves. A classic image of Christmas that would make a great notecard or greeting card cover.
All of the famous artist Raphael’s (1483-1520) work is in the public domain. This Christmas inspired piece was used in a book of Christmas poems that was published in 1864. Both the original painting and this mere photographic reproduction are firmly in the public domain.
