"Christ's Entry into Jerusalem"
Jean-Hippolyte Flandrin

This serene and majestic scene of Christ entering Jerusalem was painted by Jean-Hippolyte Flandrin on the walls of the Church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. This is one of a series of frescos painted on the walls of that church depicting the life of Christ and the Saints.

Famous in their day, they have an enduring popularity because they are so beautiful. This one is our favorite. It is in the Sanctuary on the left of the high altar. The artist manages to convey a formal calm in the composition and yet also capture the excitement of the adoring throng. And we love the colors. We always love color.

Jean-Hippolyte Flandrin (1809-1864) came from a family of painters. He became famous in his mid-twenties, and made his living by painting, including doing much sacred art. His son Paul also made a career of painting mostly sacred art.

Thanks go out to Nan C. for suggesting this one for our collection!

** 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 fine art 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!
