Fine Art Friday

Today we spotlight Spanish artist Francisco de Zurbarán (1598-1664)
A highly original Spanish artist, Francisco de Zurbarán, until recently was not known beyond Spain. His works are rarely met in European museums and are highly appreciated by collectors.
Pictures and biography are taken from Olga's Gallery

That Agnus Dei is one of my favorite prints. I have a card of it which I have kept for years and use as a bookmark for all my spiritual reading. It is tattered, dogeared, and crumpled , but remains my fav.
"This is the Lamb of God" has been a phrase ringing in my heart since childhood,and is special ever time I hear it after the Elevation.

I look forward to these art posts.
Thanks.
