Saint Joseph Holding Child Jesus By Artist CB Chambers


Saint Joseph Holding Child Jesus By Artist CB Chambers

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. While he painted and drew secular subjects, 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. "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."

This beautiful image of Saint Joseph, the patron saint of the dying, holding the Christ Child is a reminder of a father's love as well as a meaningful work of art. A beautiful gift idea for any Catholic or father in your life. The wonderfully detailed print is framed in an ornate gold finish frame.
