Madonna with Child – Waldesruh
by Joseph von Führich
As a boy, Joseph von Führich loved rustic wayside shrines and chapels which had in them pictures from the Bible and of the Saints. As an adult, he became a painter and eventually a professor of paining. He was of the Nazarene School, a movement in the early 19th Century to make art more religious, more biblical, and to move away from the superficial genius that marked art since the Renaissance. (That is a view we share, which is why we offer very little Renaissance art in our shop.)
In this lovely Madonna with Child, (in German, Waldesruh), we have a replica of a roadside shrine, with the angels hanging a woodland backdrop to an already woodland setting, giving Mary more of a throne. That is St. Francis of Assisi and St. Adelheid, a medieval empress who grew in popularity in the early 1800s. We find this Madonna extremely warm and beautiful.
8.5 x 11 acid-free paper, with about an inch-and-a-third of white space around the picture. Cardboard backer. Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.
IMPORTANT!!! The image is smaller than the paper.
Standard size. Easy to find a ready-made frame at your local Hobby Lobby. If you're sending this as a gift and would like us to frame it for you, please convo and we'll make special arrangements for you.
