This is one of the Loreto Embroideries, a breathtaking series based on Italian artist Ezio Anichini‘s sketches of the titles of Mary from the Litany of Loreto. Of Anichini’s nearly 50 sketches, 12 or 13 were anonymously turned into beautiful embroideries.

Salus Infirmorum, or “Health of the Sick,” is one of the titles that Mary is honored with. We love this picture because it is beautiful, and because it honors Our Lady. All of the Loreto Embroideries are amazing. They were done in the early years of the 20th Century.

The embroideries were a gift to an elderly nun in London, who left no record of who made them. They are now held by the Royal School of Needlework in London, regarded as masterpieces of beauty, design, and execution.

Original worked mostly in long and short stitch on a rich cream satin background in shades of beige, fawn, and brown silks, as well as white, warmed and enriched with gold threads. We spent a lot of time restoring this image, removing the flaws from the photograph and lightening it a bit to bring out the richness and contrast of the colors and the precision of the needlework. This image looks fantastic in a light oak frame with a cream matte. Standard size. Easy to find a ready-made frame at your local Hobby Lobby or online.
