Our Mother of Good Counsel (fresco; see details below )
Explanation:
Here's the story: "The picture of Our Mother of Good Counsel is familiar to all who are associated with the Augustinians. The original has been in the keeping of members of the Order of St. Augustine for over 500 years, enshrined in the church in the small town of Genazzano about 30 miles southeast of Rome, Italy. -- Legend has it that the church stood unfinished and roofless when on April 25, 1467, the image of the Madonna was miraculously transported there from its previous home in Albania. -- Careful investigation between 1957 and 1959 showed that the picture is actually part of a larger fresco that once covered a portion of the wall now hidden by the elaborate shrine altar. Art experts suggested that the fresco is the work of Gentile da Fabriano and was probably painted between 1417 and 1431." -- See the full history at the web site below. -- Best, HC
