Ref: CampionStAgnesLL (Click for LARGE picture)

Artist: Geoff Campion (biography)
Medium: Gouache on Board
Size: 12" x 10" (300mm x 255mm)
Date: 1966

This is the original Gouache painting by Geoff Campion.

During the reign of Roman Emperor Diocletian, St Agnes was tied to a stake but the bundle of wood would not burn, or the flames parted away from her, whereupon the officer in charge of the troops drew his sword and beheaded her, or, in some other texts, stabbed her in the throat.

It is also said that her blood poured to the stadium floor where other Christians soaked it up with cloths.

From the feature Woman of the Week published in Look and Learn #262 21st January 1967.
