Procession de Fete Dieu
Maurice Denis

Maurice Denis (1870-1943) had two great passions in his life. Art, and more than art, his Catholic Faith. According to art historians, Maurice Denis is one of the most important painters of the late 19th and early 20th Centuries, a transitional figure leading Impressionism into abstract art. But more importantly for us, he left behind a huge amount of beautiful Catholic paintings.

His merging of his passion for art and religion started early. At the age of fifteen he wrote in his journal, "Yes, I must that I become a Christian painter, that I celebrate all the miracles of Christianity, I feel that is what is needed."

In this painting from 1904, he makes a dreamy procession of Corpus Christi feel like the worshippers are floating up to Heaven, accompanied by angelic music from the harps of those nearby. It is gentle and mysterious, and for us at least, draws into that movement towards Paradise.

** 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!
