St Rosa Venerini

St Rosa Venerini


Icon of St Rosa Venerini.

Rosa Venerini, (February 9, 1656 – May 7, 1728) a pioneer in the education of women and girls in 17th-century Italy. She founded the Religious Teachers Venerini, a religious institute for women, sometimes known as the Venerini Sisters.

This is part of the series of religious saints, which derives from a range of sources, including manuscripts, other icons and mosaics. Some icons include 24 carat gold highlights.

Rosa Venerini is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. It is signed on the reverse in pencil. All edges are painted and varnished. 

This is one of a series of religious saints; see my gallery for other images.

The image size is 20cm x 25cm (8" x 10").
