Sheet size: 11 H. X 23 W.
Designed for the Union for Moral Action, this poster depicts"L'Enfance de Sainte Genevieve" and is after the frescos at the Paris Pantheon.

The text below first panel reads: "From her earliest years Saint Genevieve showed signs of heartfelt piety. Always engaged in prayer, she inspired amazement and admiration in all who saw her."

The text under the third panel reads, "In 429, St. Germain of Auxerre and St. Loup of Troyes, on their way to England to combat the Pelagian heresy, arrived in the vicinity of Nanterre. Among the crowd that assembled to meet them, St. Germain discerned a young girl that he considered to be marked with a divine seal. He questioned her and foretold to her parents the lofty destiny to which she was called. That child was Genevieve, patron saint of Paris."
