Thank You to the Koehler Family!!
The Koehler Family with their beautiful family antique icon, thought to be of Florentine origin. Donated to the St Katharine Drexel church in perpetuity, the icon is encased in a custom cabinet made by Deacon Floyd Loomis. Figures in the painting are the Madonna and Child accompanied by several saints. These are thought to be St Agnes, St Bonaventure, and St John the Evangelist on the left, and St Catherine of Siena, St Bernard, and St Augustine on the right..
The painting was originally the center of a triptych, and was purchased by Keith and Betty Koehler while in Mexico City in 1948. The government had seized many Catholic properties and sold it during the Cristero War to raise funds. The artist is unknown.
