Mary in art: a procession

This picture (detail) by the Dutch artist Nico Jungmann (1872-1935) depicts the people of Volendam entering their parish church in procession. They have just returned home from a pilgrimage to the famous German shrine Kevelaer, where the Virgin Mary is venerated as 'Consoler of the Afflicted'.
