Michelangelo Buonocore Rectangular Framed Religious Oil on Canvas Painting, 1733



This antique and impressive oil on canvas of big dimension (more that 2 meter high) represents a religious scene with The Virgin Mary,The Holy Baby, Saint Gaetano from Thiene and Putti. This wonderful painting is signed by Michelangelo Buonocore and dated 1733. The precious intricately carved gilt wood frame is of the same period and it's a one-of-a-kind work of art itself! This oil on canvas describes a very tender scene, inspired by a S. Gaetano's real-life event. Gaetano from Thiene was one of the most significant Church’s reformers in 16th century and here he is represented with a long black cloth, worn especially by priest, called cassock. He is kneeling while the Blessed Virgin puts the Holy Child in his arms. the Infant Jesus keeps his arms open trough the Saint. One of the cherubs holds the Holy Writ opened on Matth. 33.3. 1. Verses where is written "Servate et Facite ". The scene was inspired by a real life event. Gaetano wrote a letter to his spiritual confidant, Sister Laura Mignani, telling her that while he was praying in the Nativity chapel in the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, the Virgin appeared to him and puts Jesus in his outstretched arms. This vision, which occurred on Christmas Eve of 1517, spurred Gaetano to carrie on his Mission stronger than ever, He is also known as the Holy Providence’s Saint.
