This Victorian picture is a classic icon of Jesus as the Good Shepherd. This lovely, warm print was originally published around the turn of the last century in France by the Bouasse Jeune Company. We are amazed not just at the delicate beauty but at the printer's craftsmanship displayed, how it brings out the subtle details of the painting. The sunrise behind Jesus, the details of the figures, the careful shading of the colors, they are all superbly done. There are hundreds of versions of the Good Shepherd out there, but this is our favorite. It was so well made that it easily works in the larger size.

His figure seems to step out into our lives. This is the way it hangs over our mantle at home as a reminder of whose hands our lives are in.

** 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!
