Rosa Mystica
Mar 9 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Dear Patron,

We hope everyone is staying safe as we navigate the pandemic and vaccine distribution.

Thank you to everyone who has participated in our Rosa Mystica: A Journey of Renewal and Restoration series so far.  We hope you found inspiration in the visual theology of Marian Art.

The purpose of Rosa Mystica in showcasing Marian art has been a source of spiritual nourishment for all who have participated.  Through her images, we can imagine Mary as a person, no more or less than any of us, but with an enormous capacity for inner tranquility that enabled her to act with courage, faith, and love.

We invite you to join us for our third lecture, Rosa Mystica: Mary Sorrowful Mother, on March 9, 2021, featuring Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh’s Pietà.  Inspired by Eugène Delacroix’s Pietà which he considered a true work of art, van Gogh created a modern version while also commenting on his own personal suffering from mental illness.

For this program, the Illinois Patrons is proud to host:

Rev. Richard N. Fragomeni, PhD, Rector of The Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii in Chicago, a local site of Marian devotion.  The Shrine is unique in that it is a destination Church for pilgrimage and spiritual reflection in the ethical values of compassion, peace, care for creation, justice, and solidarity with the poor.

Dr. Rebecca Long, the Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Associate Curator of European Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago, will also offer artistic perspectives on the Pietà.  As curator of the Art Institute’s recent El Greco exhibit, her expertise will provide us with insight into the artist’s imagination.

We will also update you on the status of The Annunciation restoration and recent discoveries that may verify its 16th century Italian origin.  This painting is being restored by The Conservation of Chicago through the generosity of the Mazza Foundation.
