Seeking to grasp the essence of life, Kahlil Gibran saw his art work as creative extensions of his written work and used his art to illustrate his publications. The works in this gallery were all used to illustrate works written by Kahlil Gibran in English, including The Madman, 1918, The Forerunner, 1920, Sand and Foam, 1926, Jesus, the Son of Man, 1928, The Earth Gods, 1931, and The Garden of the Prophet, published posthumously in 1933. The Greater Self, 1916, and The Great Longing, 1916, were included in the only book written about Gibran’s art, Twenty Drawings, in 1919. With the exception of The Greater Self, all of these works were part of the collection of Mary Haskell Minis.
