A lovely angelic spiritual and historical biblical poster of Jesus Christ blessing the children and animals by well known art nouveau artist, Bella Vichon at age 15. She was a Modern artist, and part of the Austrian Impressionist movement. She was a student in her Professor Franz Cižek's 1848–1922 Jugendkunstklasse art class movement, reforming the education of art to children which was part of the Vienna School of Arts and Crafts or Kunstgewerbeschule.
The poster is simple, graphic and beautiful, with light purple litho background and book illustrator type drawings of children, dogs, dog, or animal and Jesus Christ with halo, a beautiful serene scene.
This is a beautiful Austria piece in person, actually we find it stunning, and ready for framing. We have never seen another. The poster is archivally linen backed and ready for framing. We only have this one.
