"Archangel Michael"

Print Based on Vintage Stained Glass Window

This Archangel Michael is a stained-glass window made in 1915 by Powell & Sons for St. John’s Church in Wiltshire, England. It is from our favorite series of the Archangels, including Gabriel and Raphael. It is Art Nouveau towards the end of that 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 Michael here, his nonchalance as he overpowers the devil. Such utter calm in battle! It speaks of his perfect trust in God. And, as in the other two pictures, the Angel has all the colors because he is from Heaven, and things not of Heaven are less colorful, less real.

Standard size. Easy to find a ready-made frame at your local hobby store. We recommend a wooden frame for this one, of course, either stained lightly or one of the colors in the painting that match your walls.

** 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!

Thanks!
