The Peaceable Kingdom by Edward Hicks: Connections Between Art and Literature 
Tuesday, November 6 | 12pm to 1pm
Dr. Milton Reigelman
$13 at the door

The Quaker minister and painter Edward Hicks is best known for his Peaceable Kingdom pictures, of which sixty-two exist. The paintings represent a messianic prophecy in the book of Isaiah (11:6): “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.” In his talk, Milton will focus on the 1826 version of the motif and its connection to American literature up to that point.

Milton Reigelman retired in 2017 after serving many roles at Centre. For more than thirty-five years, he has primarily been known as a professor of American literature and humanities at the College. At different times he has also overseen admissions and financial aid, student life, development, planning, alumni affairs, the Norton Center for the Arts, and communications.
