Christopher Alles created this portrait of John Henry Newman for St. Michael’s Church in New York City, commissioned by Father George William Rutler. In the scene, the artist tried to take an essential pose of Newman as the thoughtful reflective intellectual, one whose contributions to the Church are being recognized with his forthcoming canonization.
