One of America’s greatest folk artists, Edward Hicks (1780 – 1849) created sincere, charming works depicting an idealized world of pacifism and peace. Hicks was a Quaker preacher who often painted religious scenes to express his strong faith and to inspire others. Self-taught, he also earned a living by painting signs, carriages and furniture. Hicks created 100 versions of his famous “The Peaceable Kingdom” series, based on Isaiah’s Biblical prophesy—60 of the works still exist. Studied by today's scholars, Hicks’ work is displayed in numerous American museums.
