The image of the torture and death of Gabriel Lalemant and Jean de Brébeuf in 1649 was one of the most powerful images distributed of the New World. The image of Anne Nouë shows his death in the winter of 1646 after he set out to administer the sacraments to the soldiers of the garrison at Sorel. He lost his way in a blizzard and was found six miles up-stream from Sorel in a kneeling position, bare-headed with his eyes turned towards heaven. Ref. Wikipedia.
