Iconic Painting With a Little Lagniappe!





Last month I posted a vocabulary word (lagniappe) and referenced a recent art purchase.  In hindsight, I probably should have posted a picture of the painting at that time.  But alas, I had posted an art collection acquisition just a few days before and thought it best to wait for a later date.  So, thank you for your patience, here is the painting (along with a picture of the lagniappe [bonus gift]).IMG_0794  The artist: Caroline Allbee, the title: Magnificat, the medium: acrylic [and mixed media — metal and stone] on wood.   When looking for a place to display this tall, narrow piece, I was needing a space to stand it up (since the Magnificat was printed [in Latin] on the back, hanging it on the wall was not an option).   So this is now standing on my bar counter and leaning up against the wall.  It may be difficult to read the Latin text from the back of the painting, so here you go . . .

Magníficat ánima mea Dóminum.

Et exultávit spíritus meus: in Deo salutári meo.

Quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllae suae:
Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes.

Quia fécit mihi mágna qui pótens est: et sánctum nómen eius.

Et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies timéntibus eum.

Fécit poténtiam in bráchio suo: dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui.

Depósuit poténtes de sede: et exaltávit húmiles.

Esuriéntes implévit bonis: et dívites dimísit inánes.

Suscépit Ísrael púerum suum: recordátus misericórdiae suae.

Sicut locútus est ad patres nostros: Ábraham, et sémini eius in saecula.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto,

Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.
