Brother Matthew, O.S.F. formerly John Gallagher of Morristown, New Jersey, entered the Franciscan Order in 1956.
After serving in the Army during World War II he attended the Newark School of Fine Arts. Upon graduation he opened a religious book store and art studio, where he could teach his beloved handicapped.

Listing lots of Estate pieces. This is a terrific signed painting by a Missouri artist Brother Matthew Gallagher, O.S.F. Brother Matthew was serving around Eureka, MO Meaning of OSF Franciscan Brothers or Sisters Congregation of Servants of Holy Infancy Jesus Painting on old barn wood. You can see the holes where it had been installed. The artist work is charming and haunts your soul when you are viewing it. So I don't know if you call the subject a franciscan brother, monk or friar. Shabby, country, cottage, primitive, style in good vintage condition.
