Defenders of the Eucharist

This painting is a copy of a composition by the Flemish master Peter Paul Rubens in 1625. The original composition is said to have been greatly admired, and as a result was copied numerous times by students and followers.

This painting was done on a copper plate. When it came to Miller Fenwood there were several dents, which, with delicate applications of heat and pressure, were smoothed out. The frame, actually two parts, needed gesso in several places; and then Miller Fenwood fixed the insufficient way the two parts joined together.

This painting is on display at the Kruizenga Art Museum, a gift of David Kamansky and Gerald Wheaton, 2014.23.214
