This was my nana and popa's - I have always loved it and recently retrieved it from the shed where my father had chucked it - hence the scratches.

I am seeking information about this work - the artist - date etc. I haven't been able to find out much.

It is signed I HENNER

    This is Fabiola, patron Saint of nurses and abused women. The artist is Jean-Jacques Henner. The original was painted in 1885.

    You might find this interesting:

    Hello MawamaMama THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!! - I didn't realise she was a saint so that's extra neat. The article was very interesting and yes I can imagine a room full of these would be hypnotic!

    I am so excited to have discovered what this was - thank you SO much!
