This is one of our favorite representations of the Archangel Gabriel, a stained glass window made in 1915 by Powell & Sons for St. John's Church in Wiltshire, England. It is an Art Nouveau piece, towards the end of the Art Nouveau movement, an art style we especially love. Art Nouveau was a beautiful blending of high art and folk art, featuring the elegant arrangement of organic forms. We love the lush, casual beauty of Gabriel here, his nonchalance, his towering stature! We suspect he has all the color in this picture because he is from Heaven, while the Earth is a practical dull beige in comparison. The scroll says Ave Maria because Gabriel brought the Annunciation to Mary. He holds the Easter Lily because the Annunciation brought the Christ into this world.

** 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 fine art 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!
