Vintage PAINTING THE HEAD OF CHRIST W E SALLMAN 1935 Jesus
Evangelical Covenant Church
A color print of the famous work
by W.E. Sallman 'The Head of Christ' painted in 1935.
We are pleased to offer this complete,
framed print of 'The Head of Christ,' a famous, almost iconic
painting widely regarded as one of the most pervasive representations
of Jesus Christ in the United States.
The Head of Christ originated as a
charcoal sketch entitled The Son of Man done in 1924 and sold
to be the cover of the Covenant Companion, the denominational
magazine for the Evangelical Covenant Church.
Sallman did several variations of the
painting over the years, and the first oil version was done
in 1935 for the fiftieth anniversary celebration of the Evangelical
Covenant Church. That is the version this print is taken from.
Framed, this print measures 22 3/8
X 26 1/2 inches, with the actual painting measuring 15 1/2 X
20 inches. The painting weighs 7 pounds, 2 ounces.
The painting was obviously framed
from a rolled print, and there are curves still visible beneath
the glass. This is nothing that ruins the presentability of
the painting, however, and aside from a few nicks, the frame
is in good shape as well.
This painting is the perfect addition
to any Christian household, church lobby, or meeting room.
