The earliest surviving portrait of Eymard is understood to have been painted in the 1850s, when Eymard was in charge of the Marist College at La Seyne-sur-Mer.

This artistic interpretation is not the only record of what Eymard looked like. Over a dozen different photographic portraits of Eymard have survived from the 1850s and 1860s.

In addition, photographs were taken of Eymard’s body after his death in 1868, a plaster ‘death mask’ was cast of his head, and a bronze bust was produced by the great sculptor Auguste Rodin in 1863.
