A De Rosen Sketch for Rosary Cathedral

While doing an occasional eBay search for local church images, I was amazed to find a sketch by John De Rosen from his work for Rosary Cathedral in Toledo, from 1944.  Shown above is the gouache rendering for a side-aisle ceiling mural of the fifth Joyful Mystery of the Rosary, the finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple.  You can view the full listing HERE.  Many thanks to the seller for this image.
