Also by Tracy Chevalier. From that day she was called La Rousse after the Virgin Mary
Also by Tracy Chevalier. That summer the Duc de l'Aigle brought a statue of the Virgin and Child and a pot of paint back from Paris for the niche over the church door. From that day she was called La Rousse after the Virgin Mary. The nickname lost its affection when Monsieur Marcel arrived in the village a few years later, hands stained with tannin and words borrowed from Calvin.

Tracy Chevalier The Virgin Blue. The Duc de l’Aigle’s steward was no stranger
Tracy Chevalier The Virgin Blue. Only the Virgin’s face, dead centre in the painting, moved and changed, pain and a strange peace battling in her features as she gazed down at her dead son, framed by a colour that reflected her agony. As I stood in front of it, my right hand jerked up and involuntarily made the sign of the cross. I had never made such a gesture in my life. The Duc de l’Aigle’s steward was no stranger. He appeared periodically to confer with Jean Tournier and used the house to collect tithes from the surrounding farms, carefully recording them in a calfskin-bound book.
