Product Description
R. H. Ives Gammell Panoramic Notecard Folio
Painter, teacher, and author R. H. Ives Gammell (American, 1893–1981) realized at an early age that paint and canvas provided his most effective means of communication. After years of solo sketching and drawing, Gammell began studying with teachers in 1908. Always seeking refinement, he continued honing his skills, even putting painting aside for two years and apprenticing himself under William M. Paxton to study drawing and composition. Gammell then traveled throughout Europe and Africa for further study and sketching, afterward applying his sharpened technique toward his quest to translate intellectual matters—from the pages of classical and biblical literature—into paint.

In 1946, the same year Gammell began taking on students and published Twilight of Painting (a treatise on art history and the process of passing on artistic knowledge), he began creating The Hound of Heaven. Based on a religious poem of the same title by English poet Francis Thompson (1859–1907), the paintings were also influenced by Gammell’s reading of Carl Jung’s Psychology of the Unconscious. Completed in 1956, the series (twenty-three panels, each an impressive 79 x 31 inches), went on a national tour; much more recently The Hound of Heaven completed an international exhibition tour of two and a half years.

Contains five each of the following notecards:
The Hound of Heaven, panel XIII
The Hound of Heaven, panel XIX
