    By 1928, California native E. Charlton Fortune's work became much more spiritual, as she turned her focus to liturgical painting for the Catholic Church. The Calling of Saint Peter and The Denial of Christ are two works of eight that were created for the Reredos of the Sanctuary of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Kansas City, Missouri that was designed by the architect Julian Whittlesey.

    This work is located in Heritage Auction's San Francisco Gallery. The buyer will be responsible for pick-up or shipment from this location. We would be delighted to assist with these arrangements.
