St. Charles Borromeo Bavarian Reverse Painting

$245.00

This is a magnificent antique painting of the saint. It shows St Borromeo wearing red cardinal’s robes gazing at a large crucifix in his hands with a skull on the table before him. His halo is of radiant bright gold.

Reverse glass painting is an ancient folk art tradition of Bavaria. This piece is likely from the early turn of the century. The backing is also beautifully painted and held in place with wooden pegs. Fantastic. 


Saint Charles Borremeo

Saint Charles Borromeo was the cardinal archbishop of Milan from 1564 to 1584. Among the great reformers of the troubled sixteenth century, Borromeo helped lead the movement to combat the inroads being made by the Protestant Reformation. He was a leading figure during the Counter-Reformation and was responsible for significant reforms in the Catholic Church, including the founding of seminaries for the education of priests. Saint Charles Borromeo was canonized in 1610. Feast Day: November 4.
