Jean-Théophane Venard’s Last Letter to his Father

Jean-Théophane Venard's Last Letter to his Father

A missionary working for the French Foreign Missions in West Tonkin (northern Vietnam) Jean-Théophane Vénard was arrested and executed in 1861 for proselytism. During his captivity, he wrote inspiring letters to his family and superiors, demonstrating his outstanding faith. He was canonized in 1988. I was commissioned to do this piece. #jeanthéophanevénard #catholicmissionaries #christianmartyrs #calligraphy #calligraphybyraoul #calligraphie #copperplatecalligraphy #calligraphieanglaise #pointedpencalligraphy #winsorandnewtongouache #archestextwove
