gesthemane, grotto, and garden...

gesth1

two images from a brochure of gethsemane circa 1920, images of the garden and grotto. something about the brown, the etched looking lines, the gothic tramp art combination of image building, as all seems to coalesce into some pretty wonderful images - seeming both menacing and lovely at the same time (i would say they are fraught with spirit). i encourage you to click on them and look at the larger scans. of course, no artist name anywhere... one more great lost anonymous illustrator...

Tried to look at the larger image, but flickr told me the photo was private.

These do have a delicacy in rendering - Some of these unknown engravers are exceptional, I have a couple of books like that in my collection.
