Ecclesiastes


 
Ecclesiastes
 

For everything there is a season,
A time for every activity under heaven. -- Ecclesiastes 3

John August Swanson first created Ecclesiastes in the 1960s, inspired by a reading from John F Kennedy's funeral, and Pete Seeger's song, Turn, Turn, Turn. He revisited the artwork throughout his life. This new giclee joins elements from his serigraphs, paintings, and sketches, completing a project he began in May, 2017.

Swanson's vision, was inspired by the rose windows and facades of gothic cathedrals. The numerous scenes include Bible stories, parables, animals, carnival performers, and moments of human kindness. John August Swanson viewed his artwork as "a universal portrayal of humanity that easily crosses cultures, races, and languages to speak to all people of the inestimable value of time and of all human life."
