A gorgeous canvas by the famed Saturday Evening Post illustrator and specialist of Americana and religious images. He won the Peabody Award for his cover art. This work showcases his signature palette of light-saturated colors and raised paint textured details like the stained glass windows. In Rockwell states in his letter: "For years I admired his work as a cover artist and illustrator for The Saturday Evening Post and Ladies Home Journal . . . His sense of color was extraordinarily brilliant, but expressive."
