Based upon a 14th century Italian fresco, this icon by Joseph Malham shows the poverello of Assis, St. Francis and his beloved companion in faith St. Clare. Francis, in his love of poverty and filled with the radiance of God's love, is shown barefoot with the stigmata and holds the rule of the order he founded. St. Clare likewise is shown radiant with an internal sacred light and holds the palm frond rightly associated with her.
This icon is also available as a limited edition print, matted to an overall size of 16"x20", hand signed and numbered by the artist for $150.00.
Joseph Malham…Writer of Sacred Images
The images of Trinity Icons are based upon the images of Joseph Malham, an iconographer who has devoted a decade of his life to the pursuit of this sacred and ancient form of art.
Malham, whose studio is situated in a church on the north side of Chicago, is of Greek and Assyrian descent, and credits his Near East and Mediterranean heritage with his love of sacred art and iconography in particular. Malham studied art in Rome through Loyola University’s Rome Center and graduated with a BA in History from that same institution. Since 1999 Malham has been a full time iconographer and since 2001 he has been artist-in-residence at St. Gregory the Great Church in Chicago.
