A Portrait Of Thomas Merton
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
One of the most influential and beloved spiritual figures of the 20th century, Thomas Merton was and remains an enigmatic, energetic proclaimer of faith, peace and ecumenism in a troubled and irreligious world.
Study of A Monk shows Merton in the habit of his Trappist Order, arms folded and squinting headfirst into the light of eternity. This portrait is based upon a famous photograph of Merton taken at his hermitage on the grounds of the Abbey of Gethsemane in Kentucky, where Merton lived as a monk and writer from 1941 to his untimely death in 1968.
This portrait is part of a planned series of images, icons, of pivotal spiritual figures of the 20th Century. Also available as a limited edition, hand signed print matted to an overall size of 16x20 inches.
THIS PORTRAIT WILL COME FRAMED IN A SIMPLE WOOD MOULDING.
