My all-time favorite holiday painting. Edward Hicks, “The Peaceable Kingdom” (1845-46). Says an internet source, ‘The theme comes from a passage in the Book of Isaiah: 11.6-8, which tells of all the animals gathering together in harmony. Hicks recast the Biblical text as a poem: ‘The wolf did with the lambkin dwell in peace.’” A happy holiday to all, and may we give thanks for an impeachable kingdom. #Vasari21 #edwardhicks ...

Here is a full view of today’s #WhatIsItWednesday puzzle: Edward Hicks’s "Peaceable Kingdom," ca. 1848, on view in “Menagerie: Animals on View.” Hicks, who was also a Quaker minister, executed as many as 100 versions of this painting. The theme is taken from the biblical book of Isaiah, which is interpreted by Christians as a prophecy of the coming of Christ and the arrival of a peaceful world in which all animals and human beings live in harmony.

#PeaceonEarth in this holiday season! The Quaker minister #EdwardHicks is best known today for his many versions of The Peaceable Kingdom.

The Brooklyn Museum’s version of this painting includes all of the animals who, according to the scripture, had surrendered their wild natures and appetites to an inner spirituality. ...
