Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
The largest picture in the hall is a painting not entered for competition, but placed on exhibition by its owner, L'Abbe Vigonet, a Catholic priest of this city. It is by a French artist, Aubanel, and bears the date 1853. The title of the work is "Our Lady of Good Help," and it depicts a glorified female form, with a back-ground of golden light and cherubs and angels, and in the front a group of human forms--women, men and children--suppliant, beseeching and exhibiting their woes in their face and form. The picture is after the old school, and vigorous and interesting. [P. 45.]
