About

Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia Hungarian/ German School, circa 1700 oil painting on canvas, framed canvas size: 112cm x 82cm Provenance: private European collection Fine Old Master oil painting on canvas, dating to the turn of the 17th/ 18th century - circa 1700. The painting is on a large scale, with the canvas alone measuring 112cm x 82cm. The painting is either of Hungarian (Prague School) or German authorship. The work depicts Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia with a beggar. Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, (German: Heilige Elisabeth von Thüringen, Hungarian: Árpád-házi Szent Erzsébet; 7 July 1207 – 17 November 1231), also known as Saint Elizabeth of Thuringia or Saint Elisabeth of Thuringia, was a princess of the Kingdom of Hungary, Landgravine of Thuringia, Germany, and a greatly venerated Catholic saint who was an early member of the Third Order of St. Francis, by which she is honored as its patroness Elizabeth was married at the age of 14, and widowed at 20. After her husband's death she sent her children away and regained her dowry, using the money to build a hospital where she herself served the sick. She became a symbol of Christian charity after her death at the age of 24 and was canonized on 25 May 1235. The painting is beautifully framed within an antique burnished gilt frame and looks very impressive.
