Never have we seen a more beautiful rendition of the Madonna. She is beatifically beautiful.

Frédéric Charles Victor de Vernon was born in 1858 in Paris where he spent most of his life until his death in 1912.

He was a feted sculptor, engraver and medallist. Exhibiting every year at the Parisian Salons he won the premier prix de Rome for his depiction of Jason Conquering the Golden Fleece.
