Up for sale is an extraordinary oil painting on board by German artist Alois Binder (1857-1933). This artwork is rich in detail and color; he also expresses a mood of reverence for the subject of the art. The artwork is a brilliant delivery of a very familiar scene, The Virgin Mary, the Holy Mother of Jesus Christ in Prayer. The art (18 3/4" x 14 3/4") is in very good condition with only minor spots of paint missing along the edges which are covered by the frame. The frame, which we believe to be original, measures 26" x 22" and has some wear along the outer edges and corners.
On the back of the art, written in German, is some information about the art. We have attached an image so you can see it. We had a professor who teaches German translate for us.
This is his translation: "Painted for a good friend, painted by my father Alois Binder; illegible word; a cross, the numbers 3.11.42? To the honor ____. Gerd Binder; illegible word; 14.4.52?"
