Exhibit: "Hound of Heaven"
R.H. Ives Gammell’s "A Pictorial Sequence Painted by R. H. Ives Gammell Based on The Hound of Heaven" series is based on “The Hound of Heaven,” a 182-line religious poem by English poet Francis Thompson (1859–1907). Gammell began making plans to execute the pictorial sequence during World War II and completed it in 1956. The 23 large paintings incorporate symbols drawn from C.G. Jung, primitive and medieval cultures, and biblical and mythological sources.
