Visitation (Mary Visiting Elizabeth) – Bloch

Saint Elizabeth joyfully greets the Virgin Mary in this painting by C. Bloch, where the two meet for the first time after Mary had become pregnant with Jesus Christ. Another reason for the joy of Elizabeth is that she is pregnant with St. John the Baptist in this painting who 'lept in the womb' out of joy for the arrival of the Virgin Mary and Christ child.
