    This museum art print is of an original oil paint on canvas work by Stanley Spencer, now held in the Tate collection. The original was one of two paintings by Spencer rejected by the Royal Academy in 1935.St Francis of Assisi, the founder of the Franciscans, is popularly remembered for being able to talk to birds, and pray with them. In this composition, he is shown as an old man, dressed in Franciscan robes, talking to birds on a farm. Stanley Spencer told compilers of the catalogue for his Tate exhibition in 1955 that “the figure of St Francis is large and spreading to signify that the teaching of St Francis spread far and wide.” Spencer also explained how the painting was inspired by the memory of his father in a dressing-gown going to get food for the hens and ducks. Click these words to find similar printsReligious Art Prints for Frames
