Represented in this artwork is the legend of the Irish Saint Bride, who miraculously was transported by two angels to Bethlehem to attend the nativity of Christ. Here two angels carry the white robed saint across the sea. The seascape reflects Duncan's fascination with the Outer Hebrides and the Isle of Iona. Scenes from the life of Christ decorate the angel's robes and may include the artist's self-portrait as the tiny clown (a holy fool) accompanying the procession of the magi on the leading angel's gown.
John Duncan (1866-1945), born in Dundee is one of the leading representatives of the Celtic Revival in Scottish art and exponent of the Symbolist movement in Europe. Inspired by Italian Renaissance, his works are including a good range of mediums, from murals, and paintings to stained glass and book illustrations.
