Traditional Catholic art gains a compelling new medium in gallery wrap 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 La Pieta Gallery Wrapped Canvas by Bouguereau is a beautiful image that moves the viewer to contemplate Jesus' sacrifice and Mary's unity with Him. Our Lady's eyes express anguish, but, also, the strength only found in surrendering completely to God's Will. French artist William Adolphe Bouguereau was famous in the United States at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. He painted many religious masterpieces in a 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.
