"Madonna and Child"

Now available as a Christmas ornament!
I hand cut the glass and sandwich 2 prints back to back and edge it with lead-free solder. It measures 1 3/4 by 2 1/2 inches.

This gorgeous "Madonna and Child" fascinates us. It was done around 1918 by London artist and illustrator Jeanne Labrousse. Art Nouveau in style, it was first published as a one page color supplement in the February 13, 1918 issue of a magazine called The Studio, which was dedicated to Art Nouveau.

Although Labrousse had many shows at the Royal Academy and elsewhere, today this is by far her most famous painting. She was better known in her day as a pen and ink illustrator for British books and magazines. (See sample.) Her work is exquisite and charming. We have spent a lot of time looking at this picture and enjoying it.

Also available in our shop as a fine art print as well as a beautiful greeting card:
