This beautiful scene is called Madonna of the fireplace, by Jan Gossaert, in around 1500 and it's in oils.

This is a painting by Filippino Lippi, St Paul visits St Peter in Prison. The date is unknown, and it is an oil on canvas.

Can you imagine you feel the walls all around you closing in, or you feel as if you are being trapped within your present relationship with your husband, wife, job…etc…This is the kind of closed in feeling I’m getting from imagining being St Peter in that prison. Yuk!!!

That feeling is also called "Museumitis".  It was explained to me by the curator of the Museum of the UofP.  The  air in a museum is controlled.  Its humidity and oxygen levels are set for the displays, not the folks looking at them.

Oh wow, red, thank you for the information.Smile I hadn't heard of museumitis before, but I can understand the concept after reading about it. I guess winter conditions with minimal heating could bring on similar feelings too, if you feel trapped and closed in in your home now for any period of time.LOL

Another fantastic painting, The Holy family on the steps, this one by Nicolas Poussin, 1648, and it is oil on canvas. The symbilism on this one is also unmistakable. The figures on the steps are in a pyramid shape with Mary and the infant Jesus at the apex, showing their usual importance. You can also see John the baptist handing Jesus an apple, symbolising original sin and Jesus' accepting his role in the redemption of humanity.
