Ariel Agemian (1904-1963) was an Armenian illustrator of religious themes, who after 1943 worked for the Confraternity of the Precious Blood in Brooklyn, New York. He is most noted for his reproduction of the image of Jesus on the the Shroud of Turin, which is considered the most accuate likeness of the Holy Face by experts in the scientific field. This is an uncommon print, entitled 'In the Garden of Gethsemane' (which title and the name of the artist is on the print but obscured by the framing), set behind glass and offered here in its original mounting, just as I received it, in a mint condition, blond 1 1/2" wide molded oak hardwood frame, outside dimensions of which measure 14 by 11 by approx.1 1/8" thick. There is the original metal mounting ring on the center top and a dust cover seal on the reverse. Graded in Very Fine condition. I opened the frame to clean the glass, and found the print to be near perfect except for one very slight crease, hardly noticeable. The very edge of the print inside is slightly chipped due to the holding nails, but the visual as seen framed and mounted is quite perfect- a collector's religious graphic.
