About this title


America's most recognizable naive artist, Edward Hicks was virtually unknown in his own time. Alice Ford writes with sensitivity and creativity about this self-taught artist, his troubled relationship with his father and other Quaker elders, and his deep love for his children and grandchildren.

Edward Hicks, Painter of the Peaceable Kingdom remains the most complete portrayal of the life of the painter, with invaluable information about dates and attributions for this important American artist. Ford makes extensive use of family correspondence and Hicks's own memoirs, giving readers a deeper understanding of this genius and his unparalleled place in American art and iconography.

About the Author:
