Each of these stunning, compelling pen and ink prints of Jesus and Mary reflect Jose Fuentes de Salamanca's great love for his Lord and for his Mother Mary. A Spanish master, the greatest living painter of religious art in our time, Jose Fuentes de Salamanca was chosen by the Vatican to paint the portrait of St. Francisco Palau y Quer, which was accepted by Pope John Paul II during his papacy. That painting now hangs among the greatest masterpieces the world has ever known.
Seemingly formless lines are used by the artist to create the powerful Face of our Crucified Christ. He bows in submission to His Father but even in agony, He asks His Father to forgive us.
The hauntingly beautiful face of the Madonna was the prototype for the painting, Our Lady of Medjugorje. The picture has a timeless beauty. We see Our Lady at His Cross, wounded and broken with grief. Yet hope and love overshadow grief as she continues to pray for us and to thank us for responding to her call.
Jose Fuentes de Salamanca believes that the Catholic faith he shares with his wife and four children is his greatest strength. That faith is vividly reflected in these incredible pen and ink drawings.
The print measures 16" x 20" and cost $17.95 each.
