    kyratango
    (429 items)

    This one is a religious subject, from a painting Annibale Carracci painted between 1595 and 1597.

    Impossible to take it of the wall in the staircase without killing myself, sorry, you won't see the back!

    Big, about 50 cm high, some bugs (!!!) holes and fraying in the silk support.

    THANK YOU PARIS 925 FOR IDENTIFICATION :-)

      As a pagan ;-) I have no knowledge of details in Christian evangelism.
      So hoping someone well educated will know!

      Thank you for your informative comment about the halo :-)
    2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      That's interesting. I wonder what A.G.S.P.F. means......
    3. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 4 years ago
      Now I'm curious....my Latin isn't fabulous... :( Maybe I will take a sniff around the web and see if I manage to find anything.
    4. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      My latin is very basic and my religion inexistant, and my search for the acronym gave nothing :-/
      Thank for your support, friends!
    5. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Thanks a lot to you, Aura, Manikin, Officialfuel, Phil, Bb2, Petey and Kevin for taking time to visit and love This needle paint :-)
    6. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 4 years ago
      Wow, incredible needle work! I took a look around, kyratango, nothing turned up for me, sorry wish I could help. Someone will turn up! :)
    7. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 4 years ago
      Maybe Matisse, s/he seems to know a lot about classical art.
    8. racer4four racer4four, 4 years ago
      I'm not Christian either so can't help with who what where.
      This is delicately done and a fantastic frame too.

      superbe, je ne connaissat pas le needle painting-)
    10. paris1925 paris1925, 4 years ago
      MAYBE THIS COULD HELP -)

      Katherine, thank you for trying and for the love! Need a Latinist monk now :-)

      Racer, thanks for your love and appreciation :-)

      David, merci beaucoup pour le lien, je ne trouve toujours rien...

      Kevin/Vetraio, thank you for the love, I was hoping you'd have a clue on this one ;-))

      Many thanks for the loves, SpiritBear, Caperkid and Torakitty :-)

      Another lovely piece of needle work Kyra :).....OK while we're all confessing here...lol I spent a few years in the seminary and thought about becoming a priest. I did take Latin but failed miserably. There are very few remnants left of my Roman Catholic upbringing now that I'm older. I still respect the beliefs I just don't practice them anymore. I know I've seen A.G.S.P.F some where before. I think on holy cards. I agree with Lisa. The story of Rebecca seems correct.
    13. paris1925 paris1925, 4 years ago
      Pascale j'observe bien la scene on a 4 protagonistes, on a un broc devant et derriere les deux personnages principaux, un puit ou baptistere, et des ruines...
      le christ tend de la main droite ouverte le ciel, comme pour prendre du ciel... bref une représentation allégorique de son éternité?...... en cherchant un peu j'ai trouvé une piste "christ conversant avec la samaritaine" le puit c'est le puit de jacob... avec cette indication tu va retrouver le tableau d'origine.

      tu pourras traduire pour nos amis anglophone merci-)

      Update: pic 2 is from the link Paris 925 gave, pic 3 is the mirrored embroidery to show they are same!
    23. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      David, comme beaucoup de filles, j'ai du mal avec les représentations dans l'espace! J' ai dû retourner la photo pour voir que c'est LE tableau original, quelle "cruche"! ;-)

    25. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 4 years ago
      I recognized the story of the picture, but couldn't remember the details. This event in celebrated in Mexico on the fourth Friday of Lent. :)
    26. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      I have an idea for the A.G.S.P.F.!

      The original painting beeing from artist Annibale Carracci, and I saw it spelled too Annibal Garracci, I wonder if it is not the traditionnal way to tribute the author :

      Annibal Garracci (S?) Pintor Faciebat
    27. paris1925 paris1925, 4 years ago
      not a bad idea-) laudam laudat laudare-)
      -)

      me reste rien du latin pourtant 3 ans de versions....
    28. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Idem ;-D
    29. katherinescollections katherinescollections, 4 years ago
      Smart thinking, kyratango! :)
    30. OneGoodFind OneGoodFind, 4 years ago
      This is beautiful kyra. Thank you for sharing it and for everyone else who shared their beliefs. That is brave and usually not a subject anyone would touch with a 10 foot pole but it is what it is and I do believe in Christ and Jesus so you know, I really love it. I don't practice religion and don't know this particular story but this makes me want to read it. Thank you for sharing and everyone being accepting of others. It's all good!! :) As long as we can share our "stuff" here. :)
    31. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Thanks OGF! As I said believing in nothing, rather tend to paganism, lol!

      I bought it because it is a very old piece of art, and was in my collecting area at the moment.

      I enjoyed it for decades before thinking about the story represented :-)

      Again, kudos to Paris1925 for the solve!!!

      Many thanks to all 20 Samaritan lovers :-D
    32. antiquerose antiquerose, 4 years ago
      Just Beautiful....and Thanks for almost killing yourself ( for us ) ....just to get a Picture. Well done !!!!!
    33. kyratango kyratango, 4 years ago
      Hehe, Rose! I'm a coward! Pic was taken from far, too dangerous to unhang :-D

      Thank you!!!
