The Divine Shepherdess

La Divina Pastora

Divine Shepherd, WJBFor sale is this etching of unknown origin signed in the print, in de bottom middle, “WJB”, representing the divine shepherdess or “La devina pastora”.  A rather uncommon way of portraying Mary here in western Europe, although popular in: The Philippines, Portugal, Spain and South America. A very interesting article about the history of this tradition is found here on the Blog “Paternosters” from Chris LaningMy theory is that this artwork comes from a brotherhood in either Spain or Portugal and it was made by a member of that Brotherhood. The artwork seems to be printed on parchment paper. Mary’s hairdo and clothing could indicate this print is from around 1910/1920. The measurements are: 37 x 28 cms.

The condition of this mysterious artwork is very good!
