Our Lady of the Good Wind

By Geoffrey Callender, published February 1923


This short article introduces a sixteenth century picture, the property of the King of Spain, which had recently made its first public appearance in an exhibition at the Prado Museum, Madrid. Entitled ‘Our Lady of the Good Wind’ by the unknown painter, who then added the secondary title ‘The Patroness of Navigators’.
