Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Edward Hicks (1780-1849), creator of the popular Peaceable Kingdom paintings, is among the most beloved of American folk artists. Published to accompany a traveling exhibition, this profusely illustrated book draws on the unparalleled collection of Hicks' work at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Center in Williamsburg, Virginia.

The Kingdoms of Edward Hicks is the first book to integrate and discuss Hicks' secular and religious concerns — he was a Quaker minister — as they affected his artistic production. Carolyn J. Weekley draws on years of extensive research to explore Hicks' early life, the reasons he joined the Society of Friends, and his ministry. The superb illustrations include the best versions of the Peaceable Kingdom pictures and one of three known portraits of Hicks, along with a selection of other works.
