El Divino Rostro - Circa 1880
Calligraphic Line Painter
This classic 19th century 19th century oil on tin folk retablo from Mexico represents 'El Divino Rostro', also known as 'The Veil of Veronica'. According to popular belief, Veronica, a woman who made her way through the crowds when she saw Christ on his way to Calvary, wiped the sweat and the blood from his forehead. His image is said to have imprinted itself on her veil and is still preserved in Saint Peter's today. Arguably, the title of this theme is also derived from "Vera Icon" or "True Icon."
Dimensions: 6 inches vertical x 4 inches horizontal.
Condiotion notes: scattered paint loss, stable perforation near bottom edge, minor soiling.
