This panel of fabric from the beginning of the 19th century depicts scenes from St. Vincent DePaul’s life in five vignettes. Here, St. Vincent speaks to the Ladies of Charity about the plight of the children before him. The item is from DePaul University’s collection and is part of a special exhibition, “The Many Faces of Vincent de Paul: Nineteenth-Century French Romanticism and the Sacred,” at the DePaul Art Museum.
