The Peaceable Kingdom, c. 1846—47 Art Map Location #03

Edward Hicks

Dallas Museum of Art

Edward Hicks created more than one hundred versions of this subject, an allegory of spiritual and earthly harmony based on Isaiah II: 6 9:"The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." Hicks closely followed the spiritual description but added imagery symbolic of Quaker belief and Pennsylvania history. At the left, William Penn signs a peace treaty with the original Native American inhabitants of the Delaware Valley a historic model for the possibility of peaceful coexistence.
