Description
Drawing on the collections of the British Library and Rijksmuseum, an inspiring selection of cards to send your hopes and best wishes. Capturing details of rainbows, a motif which has fascinated artists across centuries and cultures. Interpreted as an ancient symbol of a state of peace in Buddhism, a pathway for the gods in Greco-Roman myth and prosperity in Irish lore. In Christian art rainbows symbolise hope, recalling Genesis 9:13, ‘I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth’. Images comprise a detail from an illumination in a 15th-century English manuscript, a sketch by Jan Brandes (1743-1808), a woodcut c.1900-1910 by Ohara Koson (1877-1945), an illustration from 1920 by George Barbier (1882-1932), and an illustration by Thomas Mackenzie for 'The Crock of Gold', published 1926.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
