illustration depicts the aged King Arthur being presented with
the Holy Grail by his loyal Sir Galahad. The Text begins with
a large decorated initial "P" to read "Purity and
innocence of spirit shall reveal the glory of the Grail."
The banderole (medieval scroll shaped "cartoon balloon")
reads "Thou givest me strength."
This painting contains many medieval
pigments that are rarely if ever used today, including real 23k
gold leaf on 14th c Italian type adhesive, malachite, azurite,
real vermilion, minium, and orpiment.
