This work represents the High Baroque tradition of illustrating the visions and ecstasies of holy figures. St. Francis stands to the right of the apparition of the Virgin and Child, while motioning to a mother with three young infants, a symbolic representation of Charity. A popular Italian saint, St. Francis of Assisi (1181?- 1226) was famed for his many holy visions and was reported to have received the stigmata, bodily punctures that echoed the crucifixion wounds of Christ. Close observation of the painting reveals that Giordano originally painted St. Francis motioning his hands towards the Virgin and Child, perhaps reaching for the Infant Christ. In the final version, however, St. Francis gestures to the figure of Charity, as a witness to the saint's spiritual vision. The saint thus serves as the intermediary for humankind, appealing to the Virgin and Child for the sake of Charity. St. Francis, the founder of the Franciscan order of monastics, dedicated his life to assisting the poor and remains one of the most popular Catholic saints.

Pick your preferred material

For every fine art print we offer a range of different materials & sizes. You can choose your your favorite size and material among the following options:

  • Poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster is a UV printed canvas paper with a nice surface texture, which reminds the actual artwork. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster print we add a white margin of approximately 2-6 cm around the print motif in order to facilitate the framing with your custom frame.
  • Canvas print: The UV printed canvas material mounted on a wood frame. It makes the typical effect of three-dimensionality. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is easy and straightforward to hang your Canvas print without extra wall-mounts. Canvas prints are suitable for all types of walls.
  • Print on glossy acrylic glass (with real glass coating on top): The acrylic glass print, often denoted as a UV print on plexiglass, makes the original work of art into great home décor and forms a viable alternative option to aluminium or canvas prints. With an acrylic glass fine art print contrasts plus small image details will be more identifiable because of the granular gradation of the picture. Our plexiglass with real glass coating protects your custom art print against light and heat for several decades.
  • Metal (aluminium dibond print): These are metal prints on aluminium dibond with an outstanding effect of depth. The non-reflective surface make a fashionable impression. The Direct Print on Aluminum Dibond is the ideal start to art reproductions manufactured with aluminum. For the Direct Aluminium Dibond print, we print your selected work of art onto the surface of the aluminum composite. The colors are luminous in the highest definition, the fine details are crisp.
