Antique, Italian Retablo/Ex Voto Painting


There are two ex-votos/retablos available. Both are from Italy, hand-painted on heavy paper, and created in 1920. One represents someone surviving a carriage accident. Another represents an infant surviving illness. These represent milagros or miracles.

V.F.G.A. is the acronym for Votum Fecit, Gratiam Accepit (Latin). It means, "He/she made a vow" and "He/she received grace." Because of the VFGA inscribed on both paintings, these may be attributed to the site of Madonna dell'Arco in Sant’Anastasia near Naples. Please see:

Ex-voto means "from a vow," and retablo means "behind the altar."

Dimensions of each painting are 6.25" x 4.75".

The price is for one painting.

Thank you for looking.
