Vintage reverse painting on glass painting depicting a Saint. The painting is of great detail and very artful crafted. The entire back ground is painted in gold leaf . The blue and red of the garment make a lovely contrast. Reverse painting on glass is a technique consisting of applying paint to a piece of glass and viewing the image by turning the glass over. It has been mostly used for religious paintings since the Middle Ages.
The reverse painting is set in its original wooden frame and is in perfect condition. It has still its original label of the manufactory Böhme on the back side which says " original reverse painting, hand made". The painting is dated at the 20th century.
