- The Artist
In charming Folk Art style, Edward Hicks depicts a serene coexistence between animals and mankind in “The Peaceable Kingdom, 1834.” A Quaker preacher, Hicks (1780 – 1849) interpreted the Biblical passage from the Book of Isaiah, in which wild animals lie down with their prey and a child leads them in peace. Part of a series of more than 60 paintings illustrating Isaiah’s prophesy, it underscores the ideal of peace with calm, brown tones. Hicks also incorporated a scene featuring William Penn’s treaty with the Indians to accentuate the theme of camaraderie. The night before he died, Hicks was working on this piece for his daughter, Elizabeth.
Considered one of America’s greatest folk artists, Edward Hicks (1780 – 1849) emphasized pacifism and peace in works exuding sincerity and charm. A Quaker preacher, Hicks often painted interpretations of religious scenes to express his deep faith and to inspire others. He also supported himself by painting signs, carriages and furniture. Completely self-taught, Hicks created 100 versions of his famous “The Peaceable Kingdom” series, illustrating the Biblical prophesy of Isaiah; 60 of these still exist. Displayed in numerous major American museums, Hicks’ work is the subject of modern-day research and study.
