"The Archangel Gabriel"

Antique Stained Glass – Powell & Sons

One of our favorite representations of the Archangel Gabriel is this stained glass made by Powell & Sons for St. John’s Church in Wiltshire, England. It was made in 1915, towards the end of the Art Nouveau movement, an art style we are very fond of. Art Nouveau was a reaction against academic art. It used elegant, organic forms and blurred the line between fine arts and craftsman arts. We love the lush, casual beauty of Gabriel here, his nonchalance, his towering stature! We are fascinated by the blues and greens of his wings. 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 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!
