Engraving by Françoise Taylor, Easter 1945

In chapter 26 of the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus prays thanks for the bread, divides it, and hands the pieces to his disciples saying “Take, eat, this is my body.” For much of her life Françoise was a practising Roman Catholic. A number of her pictures are of religious subjects, especially those she made in the mid-1940s when she was considering becoming a religieuse.
