Saint Francois de Sales, Antique Framed Lithograph

Saint Francois de Sales, Antique Framed Lithograph


19th Century French Catholic Print by Henri-Auguste Pingot

Known as the gentleman saint, Francois de Sales (not Salles), 1567-1622 seemed like an OK chap although you never can tell really can you? All I can say is I love the shape of his head and am really digging his crucifix. Despite getting the spelling of his name wrong Pingot has produced a really cool looking piece that would be just at home in a contemporary setting as it would in a more traditional interior.

Condition wise there is a small area of discolouration at the bottom near the title. Also the original backing of the frame has been replaced at some point as I think the old one had woodworm. There is some old traces of woodworm on the existing piece of frame but this has been fully treated and can only be visible from the back.

Measuring 86.5cm high X 68cm wide X 2cm deep.
