“Journey of the Magi”
Henrich Leflter

This lovely turn-of-the-century picture was made by Heinrich Leflter (1863-1919), an Austrian Catholic who had a famous career as a set designer for the theater and Vienna Court Opera under the directorship of Gustav Mahler. But he was also known as an artist, a pioneer in illustrations and the decorative arts, who did many beautiful Art Nouveau works. This one is from his 1899 calendar, the Österreichische Kalender Monatsbilder, a calendar in the Jugendstil ("Youth Style,” the German iteration of Art Nouveau), which is considered today to be his masterpiece.

Leflter’s art was deeply involved with narrative, and this beautiful scene tells a lot of the story of the Magi. The three kings, in their rich robes, trudge through the snow to a quiet animal stable at the edge of a small town, to kneel, as we know, before a tiny baby in a hay-filled feeding trough. As the saying goes, wise men still seek Him. May we all follow that star.

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a white border of about 0.5" inch for 5x7", 1.3" for 8.5x11", or 1.6" for 11x14" pictures. All Approx! Fine art printers do this because the images are almost never the same rectangular ratio of the standard paper sizes. It also gives the prints a finished look, and lets them look good in a frame without a matt.

– Acid-free paper
– Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
– Cardboard backer
– Above story of the art
– Enclosed in a tight-fitting, crystal clear bag.

Thanks for your interest!
