The painting is derived from the Mater Admirabilis, a fresco at the church Trinità dei Monti, painted by French Pauline Perdrau.
Legend has it that Predrau was commissioned by the nuns of Trinità dei Monti to paint a fresco dedicated to Virgin Mary. The work was completed in 1844 but, when she saw the painting, the Mother Superior decided to cover it with a canvas because she thought the colours were too bright. The painting was "rediscovered" on 20 October 1846 during a visit of Pope Pius IX: intrigued by the cloth, the pope asked to see what was concealed behind it, despite the complaints of the Mother Superior. The pope was struck by the painting and called it "Mater Admirabilis" ("admirable mother") and ordered that the fresco remain visible from that moment on. (Source: Wikipedia.)

The painting meant to be a tribute to Pope Pius IX by an unknown painter (read the signature), but for various reasons the work was never delivered (probably due to the riots that led to the famous Breach of Porta Pia). The painting was bought at an auction in Florence in 2003.

From a private collection, with certification in accordance with art. 64 Legislative Decree. 22 January 2004, no. 42 Code of Cultural Heritage (Italy).

The artwork will be carefully packaged and sent via courier, with insured parcel.
