The Baker's 42 Boxes and Iconoclasm

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).
