ICON NUMBER : 99455

Vision of Saint Catherine of Alexandria, Venice, 16th / 17th century, tempera/gesso on wooden board, size 43 x 37 cm, price € 5900,-.

Legend says that St. Catherine of Alexandria studied philosophy when she was young and fashionable in Alexandria's high society. During the course of her studies she learned about Christ. Then Catherine was converted by a vision of Our Lady and the Holy Child. She refused marriage to an emperor because Christ had already appeared to her in person and placed his gold ring on her finger (like St. Catherine of Siena). She later received a vision of Christ in prison. The authenticity of every icon is guaranteed. Every icon is sold with extensive written expertise
