Saint Seraphin of Montegranaro (Italian: Serafino de Montegranaro) (1540—October 12, 1604) is an Italian saint.
Séraphine Louis, known as "Séraphine de Senlis" ("Séraphine of Senlis ") (1864–1942), was a French painter in the naïve style. Self-taught, she was inspired by her religious faith and by stained-glass church windows and other religious art. The intensity of her images, both in colour and in replicative designs, are sometimes interpreted as a reflection of her own psyche, walking a tightrope between ecstasy and mental illness.
