St Bernadette of Lourdes

St Bernadette of Lourdes


Icon of St Bernadette of Lourdes.

Bernadette Soubirous (January 7, 1844, -April 16, 1879) had multiple visions of the Blessed Lady in a grotto in the outskirts of Lourdes. Some years later she became a nun and took the name Sister Marie Bernarde. Bernadette was later canonised by the Catholic Church. Lourdes has become one of the most popular locations of religious pilgrimage.

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.

St Bernadette 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").
