Christ with Martha and Mary
Henryk Siemiradzki

We love Siemiradzki's style as a painter. So relaxed looking, so natural and realistic. Mary is enraptured at the feet of Jesus, and Martha, who is doing all the work that needs to be done, is looking over with irritation. What a perfect portrayal! Of the many Martha and Mary pictures we've seen, painted throughout the Renaissance to the Modern period, this one is our favorite.

Henryk Siemiradzki (1843-1902) was a Polish painter who made his living in Rome. He is known mostly for his scenes from ancient Greece and Rome and from the New Testament. His paintings are usually large, perfectly executed in what's called the Academic style, with a psychological realism in the subjects. He has another painting in our shop of Jesus and the Woman at the Well which we also love. (source: 1886. Oil on canvas. Original is very large, about 4 by 6 foot, but we don't have the exact dimensions.)

** IMPORTANT ** THE IMAGE IS SMALLER THAN THE PAPER! There is a blank border all around the image of about .5" for 5x7, 1.3" for 8.5x11, 1.6" for 11x14, and 1.75" for 13x17". All Approx! The white space gives the framed picture a finished look without using a matt.

- Acid-free paper
- Archival pigments, rated to last for generations.
- Cardboard backer
