Wednesday 3rd June - Icon of the Day



‘Why indeed must God be a noun? Why not a verb… the most active and dynamic of all?’

(Mary Daly)

Image: ‘Niagara Falls, from the American Side’ by Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900). Painted in 1867, now on display in the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh - presented by John S Kennedy 1887.

The American artist captures magnificently the drama of Niagara Falls, one of his country's - indeed, the world’s - most famous landmarks. This monumental painting (measuring just over 2.5 m by 2.2 m) is based on a drawing Church made at Niagara in July 1856 and on a sepia photograph touched with colour.
