Old Testament Illustrations from 1924

These illustrations, drawn from the old testament, were in ‘The Great Stories of the Bible’,  published in 1924. There are 24 full page illustrations, and no credit given to an illustrator! What a shame, for he or she had such great talent. They nailed the three C’s of harmony and balance : composition, color, and contrast. The pictures capture your eye, and you stay there, drawn to the people’s plight, or their dream, or elations. Maybe it’s just me, seeing the figures that captured my imagination for so long, in almost living color. They are absolutely delightful!

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and vintage things, especially old books. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!
