Columbus in the New World, 1906, by Edwin Austin Abbey (American, 1852?1911)
Edwin Austin Abbey (American, 1852?1911) was a leading illustrator of magazines and books, and, in turn, a painter of historical subjects on a grand scale. Some of Abbey?s most important works, notably The Quest and Achievement of the Holy Grail murals in the Boston Public Library, depict dramatic scenes from medieval literature and history. Rich in color, symbolism, and evocative detail, Columbus in the New World depicts Columbus in knightly armor, kneeling behind a priest, against a backdrop of flamingos from the new world and flying pennants from the old.
