Eric's painting is of Blessed Father Jacques Berthieu who was martyred in Madagasgar in 1896. The painting depicts the very moment he was stripped of his cassock and beatened for refusing to renounce God. He was then led down a muddy path to be beaten to death and thrown in a river, never to be found. For more information on Blessed Father Jacques Berthieu click here.
The National Museum of Catholic Art & Library is currently hosting with the US Embassy of the Holy See in Rome an art exhibition called “Saints and Angels” to commemorate the “Canonization of 7 New Saints” and will be celebrated by Pope Benedict XVI on October 21, 2012. Eric's painting will first be viewed at a Black Tie Gala at the Italian Embassy on September 26th, 2012 hosted by the Board of Trustees of the National Museum of Catholic Art and Library (NMCAL) and the Ambassador of Italy to the United States and Mrs. Claudio Bisogniero. During the evening The NMCAL Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Donald Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, for his outstanding service to the Catholic community. Following the gala, Eric's painting will travel to Rome for exhbition during the Cannonization of Fr. Jacques Berthieu on October 21.
