St Teresa of Ávila

St Teresa of Ávila


Icon of St Teresa of Ávila or St Teresa of Jesus. (1515-1582)

Saint Teresa of Ávila was a prominent Spanish mystic, Carmelite nun and author during the Counter Reformation and the founder of the Discalced Carmelites. In 1970 she was declared a Doctor of the Church for her writing and teaching on prayer.

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 Teresa of Ávila 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").
