An Inspiration in Religion An Education in History A Revelation in Art Think of it, just for a moment-sixteen years of a great artist's life spent in mak ing these beautiful paintings. Sixteen years of study and care and travel and work were devoted to making these pic tures right-to make them tell us the Old Testament stories-to make the Bible real to us. They make us know the real spirit of life in Old Testament times-how they lived, how they looked, what they did, how they did it. They give us a better, truer, understanding of the Bible and its teaching. J. James Tissot. copyrigt by de Brunof, 1904.

The original paintings have been purchased by the N. Y. Public Library and have been put on perma nent exhibition. Reduced from $65.00 to $17.00 Sent Express Prepaid Order today.
