The Baker's 42 Boxes and Iconoclasm

[left]: Detail from Henry Holiday 's depiction of the Baker's 42 boxes in an illustration (engraved by Joseph Swain) to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark . [right]: Anonymous : Detail from the painting Edward VI and the Pope, An Allegory of Reformation , mirrored view (16th century). Iconoclasm depicted in a window-like inset. Under the inset sits Thomas Cranmer (not visible in this detail) who wrote the 42 Articles in 1552. In The King's Bedpost: Reformation and Iconography in a Tudor Group Portrait (1994, p. 72), the late Margaret Aston compared the iconoclastic scene to prints depicting the destruction of the Tower of Babel (Philip Galle after Maarten van Heemskerck, 1567).

Anthropomorphic Landscapes

05 Mar 2016 2 2 923
I used this small image in a comment to publicdomainreview.org/collections/the-art-of-hidden-faces-anthropomorphic-landscapes Antropomorphism isn't about faces only. Actually, humans have two pairs of cheeks. One pair of these cheeks is part of our faces. The other pair of cheeks is elswhere on our bodies. (If sitters are sitters, you don't see that pair too well.) In the example below from one of Henry Holiday's illustration to Lewis Carroll's "The Hunting of the Snark" (engraved by Joseph Swain) , Holiday wasn't inspired by John Martin's "The Bard" only. He also altered his allusion to that painting by giving the rocks the shape of our lower second pair of cheeks. And he also copied a small pattern from Martin's painting which doesn't contribute to the appearance of his illustration. Thus, this pattern simply may serve as a hint to the beholders of his Snark illustration that Holiday didn't steal anything from John Martin. Henry Holiday was an honest conundrum builder. Did you find the antropomorphic "cheeks" on the rocks in the detail from Henry Holiday's illustration, which I mounted as an inset into John Martin's "The Bard"?
