The Prodigal Son
Copy of the Rembrandt masterpiece, 50 x 70 cm, oil on canvas. Hand carved wood frame with gold leaf.
Father requested a small copy of this painting with a simple frame for a very small reconciliation area that doubles as a site for weekday masses. The small size, earth tones and narrow, simple frame allow the painting to compliment, rather than overwhelm its environment. The gold leaf draws the viewer in to the painting to contemplate the gift of reconciliation.
