‘Assisi’ is one of the original paintings used in the film Finding Saint Francis . In these paintings Angela Thomas was commissioned to give the audiences a glimpse into the places most closely associated with the Franciscan story. In these watercolours she brilliantly brings to life the feeling of the Italian landscape.
We are selling high quality cards and prints, both signed and unsigned by the artist, of all the original paintings. In addition, you can still buy a number of the original watercolors, which are mounted and framed with beautiful light oak.
Assisi – by Angela Thomas
A beautiful medieval city built on the side of Mount Subasio in the region of Umbria in central Italy. This is where Francis was born and is the environs where he lived his whole life. From the vantage point of this picture Francis, shortly before his death, blessed the city of Assisi as a city of peace. In the film it features early on as the geographical centre from which Francis made his numerous journeys to the surrounding countryside as far afield as Dalmatia, Rome, Sienna and Bologna.
