Extraordinary art (and opportunity)
Barry Moser is the kind of genius that staggers many of us. The power of his illustrations is astonishing, arising as it does from the relative simplicity of engravings. There are suggestions now and then of a Goya or Dore, say, but Moser's style is instantly recognizable as all his own. After years of being grateful that his brilliant Moby Dick illustrations left out human figures, I am equally grateful that he has put such individual faces on Biblical figures. As we know, a good artist can often best achieve the universal by giving us a detailed particular. Having this book available at such a ridiculously low remaindered price is also remarkable. Life is good.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
