Description

This is a gentle & delicate representation the Our Lady. She is attending to a dove, & as is the custom in Victorian holy cards, the dove represents the you & I. The holy card meant to remind us of the delicate & intimate relationship we have with her. We think perhaps the trompe-l’oeil lilies & the wing of the dove outside the circle indicate that we have gone to her realm in prayer, as we do. We love this image. The inscription means, "Faithful virgin, Pray for Us. Bring to your loved ones the benefits of your goodness." Boumard Fils, also known as Boumard et Fils, was a family-run publisher of religious art, active at the beginning of the twentieth century. Boumard Fils was located in the Saint-Sulpice neighborhood of Paris, the center of the religious printing industry in France. The artwork on their earlier cards, such as this one, is exemplary of the Saint-Sulpician style, which tends towards the sentimental. We think the sentiment in this picture is just right, delicate & gracious, & it gladdens our hearts. It is a lovely reminder of the relationship we can have with the Blessed Mother.
