Print developed from Eustache La Sueur’s Meekness, 1650, from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection.

Le Sueur painted the eight Beatitudes for the chapel in the Paris townhouses of Guillaume Brissonnet, among them the personification of Meekness (1650). Here the personification of Meekness, appropriately accompanied by a lamb, embodies Christ's saying in the Sermon on the Mount, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth."
