Virgin Mary in relation to the Rosary. The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is on October 7, the anniversary of the decisive victory of the combined Christian fleet in 1571 at the Battle of Lepanto, defeating an Ottoman fleet off western Greece. It was formerly sometimes known as the Feast of Our Lady of Victory.
Charles Bosseron Chambers, a Catholic born in St. Louis in 1883, studied in Berlin, Dresden, Vienna and Italy before settling in Manhattan with his wife, Anne. Chambers is best known for his religious art. The images were almost always portraits – immediate, unambiguous, prettified – but while some art critics at the time dismissed his work as overly sweet, his art was immensely popular. During the first half of the 20th Century, his "Light of the World" was the most popular religious print in America. "He's the artist who threw a bucket of paint into the religious art world," wrote Edward Doherty in Liberty magazine in 1941. "He's a rebel. He's a modern. He's the man who revolutionized the whole business... He's given his work a modern touch, a distinctly American."
CB Chambers' lovely depiction of Our Lady of the Rosary is a stunning piece of art, sure to grace any home or church with spiritual elegance. An ornate, gold finish frame adorns the beautiful print. A perfect, heartfelt gift for Clergy, Church, or any Catholic home.
