Description
Ex Voto (Grace Received) - oil on the table - Late 19th century
Italy

Ex-voto or grace received dated 1875, oil painting on panel. The panel is the offer of a shepherd to Our Lady after surviving a snake bite. It is a typical sacred item in use in Italy, where very often the faithful, after receiving an alleged miracle, commissioned this kind of works to local painters, as a description of the gesture or miracle and as thanksgiving for the grace received. Many of these Graces Received works can be found in churches, sanctuaries, chapels and even on the roadsides. I would say it is in good condition and measures 37x22 cm.
