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
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.
