In 2012, the committee published an interim edition of the Roman Pontifical, including new translations of certain texts drawn from the revised Roman Missal. I was commissioned to create a series of five color illustrations for this book, including this one of the Presentation of Jesus Christ in the Temple. <br><br> <center><a href="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/pope.jpg" target="_blank"><img border="0" alt="POPE" src="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/small_pope.jpg"></a></center> <br><br> In this drawing, Simeon holds the Christ Child; St. Joseph, the Blessed Virgin (who holds the sacrificial doves) and the prophetess Anna stand nearby. The altar has images of Moses and Elijah on it, representing the Law and the Prophets. <br><br> In the border are drawn twelve patriarchs and ten scenes from the infancy of Christ: the Annunciation, the Visitation, the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, the Nativity of Christ, the Annunciation to the Shepherds, the Circumcision of Christ, the Adoration of the Magi, the Flight into Egypt, the Massacre of the Innocents and the Fall of the Idols of Hermopolis.The four Major Prophets (Jeremiah, Daniel, Isaiah and Ezekiel) appear in the corners. <br><br> 15th century panel paintings, tapestries and prints heavily influenced this drawing. Specific artists whose work I studied when drawing it include Johann Koerbecke and Martin Schongauer. <br><br><br><br> Medium: Drawing, color ink on Bristol board <br> Dimensions: 8 1/2" &times; 11" <br> Year: 2011 <br><br>The original drawing was made on private commission. <br><br><hr><br> An open-edition gicl&eacute;e print of this drawing is available for $88. You may use the button below to pay via PayPal, debit card or credit card. Be sure to confirm the shipping address. <br><br> The original drawing included liturgical scenes specific to the Roman Pontifical; the Major Prophets I drew separately and edited into the print (shown above) in their places. <br><br> <form target="paypal" action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick"> <input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="SB2B9AD8AWD7N"> <input type="hidden" name="on0" value="Price including shipping:">Price including shipping:<br><select name="os0"> <option value="Ship within USA">Ship within USA $92.50 USD</option> <option value="Ship outside USA">Ship outside USA $97.00 USD</option> </select><br> <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD"> <input type="image" src="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_misc/add_to_cart.jpg" border="0" name="submit" alt="ADD to CART"> </form> <br> See <a href="http://danielmitsui.tripod.com/00_pages/order.html" target="_blank">this page</a> for additional ordering instructions and general information.
