The Lesson of Passover Antique Print
1 of 2

Beautiful, detailed steel engraving from the picture by Edward Henry Corbould.

Here, the artist's rendering of the subject is rather symbolical than according to the strict letter of the commandment respecting the Paschal festival. The family of a Jewish patriarch, both children and grandchildren, have gathered round the doorway of his dwelling, while he explains to them the meaning of this, the most solemn of all the Jewish feasts. The young female who stands with an elder sister, probably, near the doorway is a striking figure in the composition. Both of these females seem less attentive to the explanatory teachings of the aged Israelite than absorbed by the lamb, which they have possibly helped to rear only to be slain as the Paschal offering.

Printed on heavyweight ivory/cream stock. Reverse side is blank.
