Item Details:

Although there is no theological text specifically referring to a Virgin of the Adoption, the title of this painting, given by the artist himself, it may hint at a commemorative occasion behind the request for the commission. On another level of interpretation, it may refer to the Virgin adopting her son’s sacrifice of suffering for humanity. The lilies indicate the notion of purity associated with the Virgin but may also refer to the Virgin of the Annunciation. (from Google Arts and Culture)
