The Peacock and Beauty in Art
Hudson River Museum
Edited by Bartholomew F. Bland and Laura L. Vookles
The darling of designers, painters, and poets, the peacock, shimmering sapphire blue and emerald green, struts in paintings, sculptures, drawings, and photographs and takes place of honor in homes and churches, in museums and public spaces, as it remains in our memories and associations. The bird, a sometime symbol of morality, of life, or of vainglory, continues, always, to reflect man’s ever-changing concepts of beauty.
