MARYHILL MUSEUM of Art is displaying through May 27 The Hound of Heaven. A pictorial sequence painted by R.H. Ives Gammell is based on “The Hound of Heaven,” a 182-line religious poem by English poet Francis Thompson (1859–1907). Gammell began making plans to execute the pictorial sequence during World War II and completed it in 1956. The 23 large paintings incorporate symbols drawn from C.G. Jung, primitive and medieval cultures, and biblical and mythological sources. The exhibit appears in the upper level changing exhibits gallery. Pictured above is a portion of Panel IX: “For, though I knew His Love Who followed, Yet was I sore adread Lest, having Him, I must have naught beside.” Learn more about special discounted and free admission programs to Maryhill online.
