“There were not found Women Fair as the Daughters of Job in all the Land.”
Another subject for which the Book of Job affords no distinct authority. Job is seen relating his trials and his mercies to the new daughters that were born to him, “no women so fair in all the land;” and behind them, as it were on panels in the walls of the chamber, are represented the scenes he describes. The comparison of these smaller designs with the preceding representations is interesting, and illustrates the vigor and variety of the artist’s imaginative vision.
