A contemporary painting after the work of Scottish symbolist painter John Duncan's (1866-1945) 1913 'Saint Bride' which is displayed at the Scottish National Gallery. Tempera on Canvas.
The legend of the Irish Saint Bride tells the story of her miraculous journey to Bethlehem to attend the nativity of Christ. The white robed saint is carried across the sea by two angels. The seascape supposedly reflects Duncan's fascination with the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Iona. The birds and seal provide an effective naturalistic foil for the supernatural angels overlapping the patterned border.
