‘St Peter’s Basilica, Rome’ 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.
St Peter’s Basilica, Rome – by Angela Thomas
This picture doesn’t really need any introduction being one of the most famous buildings in the world. It was here that Francis came to on a pilgrimage and where he threw all his money down the grating onto the tomb of Saint Peter. When he came out of the building he exchanged clothes with a beggar for the day and sat outside the cathedral begging for money before returning to Assisi penniless and hungry.
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.
