The Sacristan at St. Jean de Bebian Cathedral, Pézenas, showed me this copy of an early Black Madonna which is kept back in the vestry. It is dressed and brought out only on certain feast days. The Sacristan said the copy dates from the 13th century.

The image was taken in 1999 in Pézenas, France, in 35mm format under available light conditions using high-speed transparency film. It is printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag archival paper with an Epson 9800 printer using 3-K archival Ultrachrome inks. The mat is 4-ply, museum-quality, acid-free, unbuffered mat board.

The image is printed in the following editions: 50 are 20 x 16 in. (mat size 32 x 29 in.); 100 are 14 x 11 in. (mat size 20 x 17.5 in.) Click on INFORMATION to call or email for prices.
