Catholic artist Matthäus Schiestl did a lot of super charming art in the latter 19th Century and early part of the 20th Century. This church in the countryside warms our heart because it is beautiful, and it is how life should be. A lot of his scenes are cozy, personal, and secluded. They radiate a warmth and the spirituality of little things.

Matthäus Schiestl (1869-1939) had an artistic family. His father was a wood carver, and he and his brothers entered into the trade. In 1894 he began training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, and eventually in 1912 became an art professor there. (source: Wikipedia) Besides his many Catholic pantings, he also did historical work and portraiture. Many holy cards of his work can be found on places like Etsy or other platforms. He also made a series of postage stamps in the late 1930s for the government Lichtenstein. He was quite popular in his day, and made his reputation among the people.

We carry another of his, Woman Entering the Chapel of Mary and Jesus. We hope to add several more. He has another dozen or so that we know of that we think are just wonderful.

** 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!
