Beautiful! in a way it reminds me of this picture. A bit more modern but the same feeling

I racking my brain for pre-reformation European artist. I figure they would have had more access to religious thus I'd get more works. For some reason nuns are harder to come by, I'm assuming it's because of their cloistered nature. Friars are the easiest to find.

So far the Renaissance hasn't giving me much.

I'm trying to avoid mass produced hoy card type images and commonly known works and focus on obscure works of everyday religious and clerics.

These fellows look suspiciously similar. I'm thinking this is the same guy just posing as religious.
Rembrandt did this with his son Titus.
