This giclée print offers beautiful color accuracy on a high-quality paper (235 gsm) that is a great option for framing with its smooth, acid free surface. Giclée (French for “to spray”) is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are sprayed onto the paper’s surface creating natural color transitions.
In “The Peaceable Kingdom, 1834,” Edward Hicks portrays a calm coexistence between animals and mankind. A Quaker preacher, Hicks (1780 – 1849) interpreted the Bible’s Book of Isaiah passage in which predators and prey exist harmoniously, as a child leads them in peace. Creating more than 60 paintings based on Isaiah’s prophesy, Hicks inserted an image of William Penn’s truce with the Indians into this work, emphasizing tolerance with calm, brown tones. Hicks was working on this piece for his daughter the night before he died.
