cockerel, and he bought it, but another

A MIGHTY AGENCY FOR THE SALVA

Pictures Potent For Good or Evil nn

Praise For American Artists .Need
of Art Galleries.
Copyright. Louis Klopsch. 1S33.J
Washington, June 18. Dr. Taluiage
shows In this discourse how art may
become one of "the mightiest agencies
for the elevation and salvation of the
human race. The test Is Isaiah H, 12,
16, "The day of the Lord of hosts shall
be upon all pleasant pictures."
Pictures are by some relegated to
the realm of the trivial, accidental,
sentimental or .worldly, but my test
shows that God scrutinizes pictures,
and, whether they are good or bad,
whether used for right or wrong pur
poses, is a matter of divine observa
tion and arraignment. The divine mis
sion of pictures is my subject. That
the artist's pencil and the engraver's
knife Iiave sometimes been made sub
'servient to the kingdom of the bad is
frankly admitted. After the ashes
and scoria were removed from Her
culaneum and Pompeii the walls of
those cities discovered to the explor
ers a degradation in art which cannot
be exaggerated. Satan and all his
imps have always wanted the -fingering
of the easel; they would rather
have possession of that than the art
of printing, for types are not so po
tent and quick for evil as pictures.
The powers ef darkness think they
have gained a triumph,' and they have,
when in some respectable parlor or
public art gallery they can hang a can
vas embarrassing to the good but fas
cinating to the evil.
It is not in a spirit of prudery, but
backed up by God's eternal truth,
when I say that you have no right to
hang in your art rooms or your dwell
ing bouses that which would be offen
sive to good people if the figures pic
tured were alive in your parlor and the
guests of your household. . A picture
that you have to hang in a somewhat
secluded place, or that In a public hall
you cannot with a 'group, of friends
deliberately stand be'fore and discuss,
ought to have a knife stabbed into it
at the top and cut clear through to the
bottom, and a stout finger thrust in on
the right side, ripping clear through to
the left. Pliny the elder lost his life
by going near enough to see the inside
of Vesuvius, and the farther you can
stand off from the burning crater of
sin the better. Never till the books of
the last day are opened shall we know
what has been the dire harvest of evil
pictorials and unbecoming art galler
ies. Despoil a man'sTmagination and
he becomes a mere carcass. The show
windows of English and American cit
ies, in which. the low theaters have
sometimes hung long lines of brazen
actors and actresses In style Insulting
to all propriety, have made a broad
path to death for multitudes of people.
But so have all the other arts been at
times suborned of evil. How has mu
sic been bedraggled? Is there any
place so low down in dissoluteness
that. Into It has not been carried Da
vid's harp, and Handel's organ, and
Gottschalk's piano, and Ole Bull's vio
lin? and the flute, which though named
after so insignificant a thing as the.
Sicilian eel, which has seven spots on
the side like flute holes, yet for thou
sands of years has had an exalted mis
sion? Architecture, born In the heart
of him who made the worlds, under its
arches" and across its floors, what
bacchanalian revelries have been en
acted! It is not against any of these
arts that they have been so led Into
What a poor world this would be if
It were not for what my text calls
"pleasant pictures!" I refer to your
memory and mine when I ask if your
knowledge of the Holy Scriptures has
not been mightily augmented by the
woodcuts or engravings in the old
family Bible which father and mother
read out of and laid on the table in the
old homestead when you were boys
and girls. The Bible scenes which we
ai: carry in our minds were not gotten
from the Bible typology, but from the
Bible pictures. To prove the trnth'of
it in my own case, the other day I took
up the old family Bible which I inher
ited. Sure enough, what 1 have car
ried in my mind of J-icob's ladder was
exactly the Bible engraving of Jacob's
ladder, and so with Samson carrying
off the gates of Gaza, Elisha restoring
the Shunammite's son, the massacre of
the innocents, Christ blessing little
children, the crucifixion and the last
judgment. My idea of all these is that
of the old Bible engravings which I
scanned before 1 could lead a word.
That is true with nine-tenths of you.
If I could swing open the door of your
forehead1'. I would find that you are
walking picture galleries. The great
intelligence abroad about the Bible did
not Some from the general reading of
the .book, for the -najority of the peo
ple read it but little, if they read It at
all; but all the sacred scenes have been
put before the great masses, and not
printer's ink, but the pictorial art,
must have the credit of the achieve
ment. First, painter's pencil for the
favored few, and then engraver's plate
or woodcut for millions on millions!
What overwhelming commentary on
the Bible, what re-enforcement .for pa
triarchs, prophets, apostles and Christ,
what distribution of Scriptural knowl
edge of all nations, in the paintings
and engravings therefrom of Holman
Hunt's "Christ In the Temple," Paul
Veronese's "Magdalen Washing the
Feet of Christ," Baphacl's "Michael
the Archangel." Albert Durer's "Drag
on of the Apocalypse," Michael An
gelo's "Plague of. the Fiery Serpents,"
Tintoretto's "Flight Into Egypt," Ru
bens' "Descent From the Cross,"

trating, displaying, dramatizing, irra
diating Bible truths until the Scrip
tures are not today so much on paper
as on canvas, not so much In Ink as in
all the colors of the spectrum. In 1833,
forth from Strassburg, Germany, there
came a child that was to eclipse in
speed and boldness anything and
everything that the world had ever
seen since the first color appeared on
the sky at the creation, Paul Gustavo
Dore. At 11 years of age he published
marvelous lithographs of his own. Say-
lag nothing of what he did for Milton
"Paradise Lost," emblazoning it on
the attention of the world, he takes up
the book of books, the monarch of
literature, the Bible, and in his pic
tures, "The Creation of Light," "The
Trial of Abraham's Faith,"' "The
Burial of Sarah," "Joseph Sold by His
Brethren," "The Brazen Serpent,"
"Boaz and Ruth," "David and Go
liath," "The Transfiguration," "The
Marriage In Cana," "Babylon Fallen'
and 205 Scriptural scenes in all, with
a boldness and a grasp and almost su
pernatural afflatus that make the heart
throb and the brain reel and the tears
start and the cheeks blanch and the
entire nature quake with the tremen
dous things of God and eternity and the
dead. I actually staggered down the
steps of the London Art gallery under
the power of Dore's "Christ Leaving
the Praetorium." Profess you to be a
Christian man or woman and see no
divine mission In art and acknowledge
you no obligation either in thanks to
God or man?
Art's Divine Mission.
It Js no more the word of God when
put before us in printer's Ink than by
skillful laying on of colors or designs
on metal through incision or'corrosion.
What a lesson in morals was presented
by Hogarth, the painter, in his two
pictures, "The Rake's Progress" and
"The Miser's Feast," and by Thomas
Cole's engravings of the "Voyage of
Human Life" and the "Course of Em
pire." and by Turner's "Slave Ship."
God In art! Christ in art! Patri
archs, prophets and apostles in art!
Angelt. in art! Heaven in art!.
The world and the church ought to
come to the higher appreciation of the
divine mission of pictures, yet the
authors o'f them have generally been
left to semistarvation. West, the
great painter, toiled in unappreciation
till, being a great skater, while on the
ice he formed the acquaintance of
General Howe of the English army.
who, through coming to admire West
as a clever skater, gradually came to
appteciate as much that which he ac
complished by his band as by his heel.
Poussiu, the mighty painter, was pur
sued and had nothing with which to
defend himself against the mob but
the artist's portfolio, which he held
over his head to keep off the stones
hurled at him. The pictures of Rich
ard Wilson of England were sold for
fabulous sums of money after his
death, but the living painter was glad
to get for his "Alcyone" a piece of
Stilton cheese. From 16-10 to 1C43
there were 4,000 pictures willfully de
stroyed. In the reign of Queen Eliza
beth it was the habit of some people
to spend much of their time in knock
ing pictures to pieces. In the reign of
Charles I it was ordered by par
liament that all pictures of Christ
be burned. Painters were so badly
treated and humiliated in the begin
ning of the eighteenth century that
they weie lowered clear down out of
the sublimity of their art and obliged
to give accounts of what they did with
their colors. The oldest picture in
England, a portrait of Chaucer, though
now of great value, was picked out of
a lumber garret. Great were the trials
of Quentin Matsys, who toiled on from
blacksmith's anvil till, as a painter,
he won wide recognition. The first
missionaries to Mexico made the fatal
mistake of destroyiug pictures, for
the loss of which art and religion must
ever lament. But why go so far back
when in this year of our Lord to be a
painter, except in rare occasions,
means poverty and neglect, poorly
fed, poorly clad, poorly housed, be
cause poorly appreciated?
Value of Art Galleries.
When I hear a man is a painter, I
have two teelings one of admiration
for the greatness of his soul and the
other of commiseration for the needs
of his body. But so it has been in all
departments of noble work. Some of
the mightiest have been hardly be
stead. Oliver Goldsmith had such a big
patch on the coat over his left breast
that when he went anywhere he kept
his hat in his hand closely pressed
over the patch. The world renown
ed "Bishop Asbui-y had a salary of 564
a ear. Painters are not the only ones
who have endured the lack of appreci
ation. Let men of wealth take under
their patronage the suffering men of
art. They lift no complaint; they
make no strike for higher wages. But
with a keenness of nervous organization-
which almost always character
izes genius these artists suffer more
than" auy one but God can realize.
There needs be a concerted effort for.
the suffering artists of America, not
bcntimeufcil discourse about what we
owe to artists, but contracts that will
give thein a livelihood; for 1 am In full
sympathy with the Christian farmer
who was very busy gathering his fall
apples, and some one asked him to
pray for a poor family, the father of
whom had broken his leg, and the busy
farmer said: "I cannot stop now to
praj, but you cau go down into the
colli' r and get some corned beef and
butter and eggs and potatoes. That js
all 1 cau do now."
Artists may wish for our prayers,
but they also vt.iut practical help from
men wiio can give them work. Y"ou
have lienid srnres of sermons for all
other klncM of suffering men and wom
en, but m need sermons that make
pleas for the suffering meu aud women
of American art. Their work is
more true to nature and life than some
of the masterpieces that have become
immortal on the other side of the sea,
but it is the fashion of American!, to
mention foreign artists and to know
little or nothing about our own Cople.v
and Allston, and Tuman and Gree
nough, and Kensett. Let the alliuent
fling out of their windows aud into tne
backyard valueless daubs ou canvas
and call in these splendid but unre
warded men and tell them to adorn
your walls, not only with that which
shall please the taste, but enlarge the
minds and improve the morals aud
save the souls of those who gaze upon
them. All American cities"need great
galleries of art, not only open annually
for a few days on exhibition, but which
shall stand open all the year round,
and from early morning until 10 o'clock
at night and free to all who would
come and go.
Build Art Galleries.
What a preparation for the wear and
teat of the day a five minutes' look In
the morning at some plcturo that will
open a door Into soma larger realm
than that in which our population
dally drudge! Or what a good thing
the half hour of artistic opportunity
on tho way homo in tho eyjenhu: from
exhaustion that demands recuperation
for mind and soul ns well as body!
Who will do for the city where you
live what W. W. Corcoran did for
Washington and what others have
done for Philadelphia and Boston and
Xew York? Men of wealth, if you are
too modest to build and endow such a
place during your lifetime, why not
go to your iron safe and take out your
last will and testament and make a
codicil that "shall build for the city of
your residence a throne for American
art? Take some of that money that
would otherwise spoil your children
and build an art gallery that shall as
sociate your name forever, not only
with the. great masters of painting
who are gone, but with the great mas
ters who are trying to live, and also
win the admiration and love of lens of
thousands of people who, unable to
have fine pictures of their own. would
be advantaged. By your benefactions
build your own monuments and not
leave it to the whims of others. Some
of the best people sleeping in Green
wood have no monuments at all, oi
some crumbling stones that in a few
years will let the rain wash out name
and epitaph, while some men whose
death was the abatement of a nuisance
have a pile of Aberdeen granite high
enough for a king and eulogium
enough to embarrass a seraph.
Oh, man of large wealth, instead of
leaving to the whim "of others your
monumental commemoration and epi
taphology, to be looked at when people
are going to and fro at the burial of
others, build right down in the heart
of our great city, or the city where you
live, an immense free reading room or
a free musical conservatory or a free
art gallery, .the niches for sculpture
and the walls abloom with the rise and
fall of nations and lessons of courage
for the disheartened and rest for the
weary and life for the dead, and 150
years from now you will be wielding
influences in this world for good. How
much better than white marble, that
chills you if you'put your hand on It
when you touch it in the cemetery,
would be a monument in colors. In
beaming eyes. In living possession, in
splendors which under the chandelier
would be glowing and warm and look
ed at by strolling groups with cata
logue in hand, on the January night
when the necropolis where the body
sleeps is all snowed under! The tower
of David was hung with' 1,000 dented
shields of battle, but you, oh man of
wealth, may have a grander tower
named after. you, one that shall be
hung not with the symbols of carnage,
but with the victories of that art
which was so long ago recognized in
my text as "pleasant pictures." Oh,
the power of pictures! I cannot de
ride, as some have done. Cardinal Ma
zariu, who, when told that he must die,
took his last walk through the art gal
lery of his p-tlace, saying: "Must I quit
all this? .'ook at that -Titian! Look
at that Correggio! Look at that del
uge of Caracci! Farewell, dear "pic
tures!" A Universal Language.
As the day of the Lord of hosts, ac
cording to this text, will scrutinize the
pictures, I implore all parents to see
that in their households they have
neither In book nor-newspaper nor on
canvas anything that will depravy.
Pictures are no longer the exclusive
possession of the affluent. There Js
not a-respectablc homo in these cities
that has not specimens of woodcut or
steel engraving, if not of painting,
and your whole family will feel the
moral uplifting or depression. Have
nothing on your wall or in books that
will familiarize the young with scenes
of cruelty and wassail. Have only
those sketches made by artists in ele
vated moods and none of those scenes
that seem the product of artistic de
lirium tremens. Pictures are not only
a strong but a universal language.
The human race is divided Into almost
as many languages as there are na
tions, but the pictures "may speak to
people of all tongues. Volapuk many
have hoped, with little reason, would
become "a worldwide language. But
the pictorial is always a worldwide
language, aud printers' types have, no
emphasis compared with it. We -say.
that children are fond of pictures; but
notice "any man when he takes up a
book and jou will see that the first
thing that he looks at is the pictures.
Have only those in your house that ap
peal to the better nature. Oue en
graving has sometimes decided an
eternal destiny. Under the title of
tine iirts there have come here from
France a- class of pictures which
elaborate argument lias tried to prove
irreproachable. They would disgrace
a barroom aud they need to be confis
cated. Your children will carry tho
pictures of their father's house with
them clear on to the grave, and, pass
ing that marble pillar, will take them
Furthermore, let all reformers, and
all Sabbath school teachers and all
Christian workers realize that, if they
would be effective for good, they must
make pictures, if not by chalk ou
blackboards, or kindergarten designs,
or by pencil ou canvas, then by w ord.
Arguments are soon forgotten, but pic
ture.", whether in language or in colors,
are what produce stiongest effects.
Christ was always telling what a thing
was like, and his sermon ou the mount
was a great pictiue gallery, beginning
with ji sketch of a "city on a hill that
cannot be hid" and ending with a
tempest beating against two houses,
one on the rock and the other on the
sand. The parable of tho prodigal sou,
a picture; parable of the sower who'
went forth to sow, a picture; parable
of tho unmerciful servant, a picture;
parable of the ten virgins, a picture;
parable of tho talents, a picture. Tho(

I read of a man who had been exe
cuted for murder, and the Jailor found
afterward a picture made on tho wall
of the cell by the assassin's own hand,
a picture of a flight of stairs. On the
lowest step he had written: "'Dis
obedience to parents;" on the second,
"Sabbath breaking;" on the third,
"drunkenness an. gambling;" ou the
fourth, "murder," and on the fifth and
top step, "a gallows." If that man had
made that picture before he took the
first step, he never would have taken
any of them! Oh, man, make another
picture, a bright picture, an evangelic
al picture and I will help you make it!
I suggest six steps for this flight of
stairs. On the first step write the
words, "A nature changed by the Hoiy
Ghost and washed In the blood of the
lamb;" on the second step, "Industry
and good companionship;" on the third
step, "A Christian home with a family
altar;" on the fourth step, "Ever wid
ening usefulness;" on the fifth step, "A"
glorious departure from this world;"
on the sixth step. "Heaven, heaven,
heaven"" Write it three times, and let
the letters of the one word be made
up of banners, the second of coronets
and the third of thrones! Promise me
that you will do that, and I will prom
ise to meet you on the sixth step, if the
Lord will, through his pardoning
grace, bring me there too.
And here I am going to say a word
of cheer to people who have never had
a word of consolation on that subject.
There arc men and women in this
world by hundreds of thousands who
have a fine natural taste and yet all
their lives that taste has been sup
pressed, aud although they could ap
preciate the galleries of Dresden and
Vienna and Naples far more than 090
people out of 1.000 who visit them,
they may never go for they must sup
port their households, and bread and
schooling for their children are of
more importance than" pictures.
Though fond of music they are com
pelled to live amid discord; and though
fond of architecture they dwell in
clumsy abodes.and thoughappreciative
of all that engravings and paintings
can do they are in perpetual depriva
tion. You are going, after you get on
.the sixth step of that stairs just spok
en of, to find yourselves in the royal
gallery of-the universe, the concenter
ed splendors of all worlds before your
transported vision. In some way all
the thrilling scenes through which
we and the church of God have passed
in our earthly state will be pictured
or brought to mind.
At a eyclorama of Gettysburg a
blind man who lost his sight in battle
was with his child heard talking while
standing before that picture. The
blind man said to the daughter, "Are
theie at the right of the picture some
regiments marching up a hill?" "Yes,"
she said. "Well." said the blind man,
(Il tltit'i, ! (riiimi!,! nn linrcnhncV Infill
ing them on?" "Yes," she said. "Well,
is there rushing down ou these men a
cavalry charge?" "Yes," was the re
ply. "And do there seem to be many
dying and dead?" "Yes." was the an
swer. "Well, now, do you see n shell
from the woods bursting near the
wheel of a cannon?" "Yes," she said.
"Stop right there!" said the blind man.
"That is the last thing I ever saw on
earth! What a time it was, Jenny,
when I lost my eyesight!" But when
you, who hav e found life a hard battle,
a Very Geltysbufg, shall stand in the
royal gallery of heaven, and with your
new vision begiu to see and under
stand that which in your earthly blind
ness you could not see at all, you will
point out to your celestial comrades,
perhaps to your own dear children
who have gone before, the scenes of
the earthly conflicts in which you par
ticipated, saying: "There from that hill
of prosperity I was driven back; in
that valley of humiliation I was
wounded. There I lost, my eyesight.
That was the way the world looked
when I last saw it." But what a grand
thing to get celestial vision and stand
here before the eyclorama of all worlds
while the rider on the white horse goes
on "conquering and to conquer," the
moon under his feet and the stars of
heaven for his tiara!
