One of the most inspired painters of the nineteenth century, Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1794 –1872) was also a brilliant engraver and draftsman. This collection, among his major accomplishments, includes scores of engravings that bring to life familiar scenes from the Old Testament ― from the creation of the world and the fall of Adam and Eve to the story of Noah and his Ark and David's slaying of Goliath. Imbued with a sense of grace and spontaneity, Schnorr von Carolsfeld's monumental compositions pay minute attention to detail. Each of the 160 beautifully composed images, selected from a rare nineteenth-century publication, is accompanied by a caption citing title and biblical book and chapter.
An important reference for students and scholars of scriptural studies, this handsome archive will also serve as an important sourcebook for designers and commercial artists.

Dover selection of illustrations from Die Bibel in Bildern, published by Georg Wigand, Leipzig, 1860.
