This issue’s cover features St. Bruno orders the construction of the monastery by Eustache Le Sueur (1616-1655). It is one of a series of twenty-two paintings depicting the life of Saint Bruno created between 1645 and 1648 for the cloister of a Carthusian charterhouse in Paris, which was near today’s Jardin du Luxembourg.
