Comprising two essays, this book features the Telfair’s collection of work by and about Gibran, the largest holding in the United States. The collection spans Gibran’s career from his first major exhibition at photographer Frederick Holland Day’s studio in Boston in 1904 to works created during the last years of his life. It includes photographs of Gibran and his New York studio and a portrait of the young artist painted by Lilla Cabot Perry.
Sammons’ essay discusses the visionary artist’s creations as well as addresses Gibran’s relationship with Haskell and the development of her personal collection, which makes up the majority of the Telfair’s Gibran holdings.
Bushrui’s essay focuses on Gibran’s literary contributions through six of Gibran’s English-written books from which the Telfair collection includes original illustrations by the artist. These books include The Madman (1918), The Forerunner (1920), Sand and Foam (1926), Jesus the Son of Man (1928), The Earth Gods (1931), and The Garden of the Prophet.
