John Rybolt writes, “Actually, this is an old St. Vincent painting, from the 18th century. The original is in the chapel of the Hospital of St. Eutrope (now Hôpital Thermal) in Dax, the hospital where the newly beatified Sr. Marguerite Rutan, D.C., was Sister Servant at the time of the Revolution. The painting hangs above the main altar.
The image is new for the St. Vincent Image Archive, located under the “Paintings” folder, then classified under France.”
