Séraphine Louis (Séraphine de Senlis) was a French painter in the Naive style. Self-taught, she was inspired by her religious faith and by stained-glass church windows and other religious art. Although Uhde reported that she died in 1934, she survived friendless and alone until 1942, according to the recent film on the artist. (Wikipedia 6/15/2009)
