Traditional Catholic art gains a compelling new medium in gallery wrapped canvas. Canvases featuring this modern art trend combine special printing technology and the technical skill of our Steubenville craftsmen to carefully wrap and tuck the canvas around the back of a 3/4" thick engineered wood mount. This method creates an impressive visual display with a faux 3D effect as the image continues around all visible sides of the mount. The canvas is free of visible staples or tacks and stands alone with no need for a frame. Each canvas hangs with a wire in the back and has an attractive satin-matte finish.
Our Holy Family with Grandparents gallery wrapped canvas was painted by a Belgian artist named Joseph Paelinck in 1820 blessed the world with this beautiful and intimate depiction of the Holy Family, unique in that it features not only Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, but also the Grandparents of our Lord, St. Joachim and St. Anne. In the image, the Virgin Mary and her mother St. Anne hold the Christ Child, observed by Mary's husband St. Joseph and her father St. Joachim. The dramatic lighting and the sharply articulated folds of drapery in this intimate work show Paelinck's admiration of Jacques-Louis David's Neoclassical style.
A simple, neat, and beautiful way to adorn your home, office, or parish - or even to give as a gift to a friend, relative, or priest.
