Originally debuted at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893, Notre Dame des Anges (Our Lady of the Angels) by Catholic master painter William Adolphe Bouguereau is one of the renowned artist's most colorful and brilliant Marian works. Lost and forgotten for over 100 years following its debut, Notre Dame des Anges missed the Bouguereau art revival that took place in the early 2000's for a simple but powerful constraint: there were no colored prints available. The striking colors of the beautiful painting by Bouguereau, whose pieces are often noted to have more subdued hues, are its defining characteristics, and the sepia-toned versions that had long been on the market simply did not do the work justice.
But now the literal and figurative darkness surrounding Notre Dame des Anges has been lifted and Catholic to the Max is honored to re-introduce this key Bouguereau piece to the world.
In this majestic painting by French artist William Adolphe Bouguereau, Our Lady is beautifully portrayed in color as the Queen of the Angels.
Available in several sizes, our oversize framed canvases are the solution churches are looking for, the statement your parish council wants to make, or the centerpiece of your Catholic home life.
Nelson framed canvases are second only to the original masterpieces themselves! Solid wood, deluxe frames and premium stretcher bars support our breathtaking giclee religious canvases. Giclee is a french word that means "sprayed ink," and it refers to our museum-quality printing process whereby 8 different colored inks combine to create millions of colors that are slowly sprayed into canvas material. This high-tech method of art reproduction offers the highest possible fidelity to the original work and results in a clear depiction with colors as good (or sometimes better) than the original painting. Under archival conditions, giclee canvases have a total color fidelity guarantee for 70-100 years.
For the faithful Catholic that wishes their sacred art to be blessed with holy water: canvases are sparingly water repellent, so while a typical blessing should not damage the canvas, those who favor more robust uses of holy water should take caution near the art. ;)
