This signed 50 inch wide (an exact size facsimile of the original) Giclee print on canvas by the foremost illustrator of Paradise Lost of the 20th Century will, over the centuries, come to stand with other great prints throughout history. Why? Because it is by an artist/philosopher whose thinking on art and the human condition has already made an impact. This print illuminates his unique idea on the nature of “God’s Perfect Mercy.”

Eve Sees Herself

Back of card:

Eve Sees Herself in Water from John Milton's PARADISE LOST, drawing, 32 x 17.5 inches, by Terrance Lindall 2013, Collection Yuko Nii Foundation, Copyright 2013

When from sleep I first awak't, and found my self repos'd Under a shade of flours, much wondring where And what I was, whence thither brought, and how. Not distant far from thence a murmuring sound Of waters issu'd from a Cave and spread Into a liquid Plain, then stood unmov'd Pure as th' expanse of Heav'n; I thither went With unexperienc't thought, and laid me downe On the green bank, to look into the cleer Smooth Lake, that to me seemd another Skie. As I bent down to look, just opposite, A Shape within the watry gleam appeard Bending to look on me, I started back, It started back, but pleas'd I soon returnd, Pleas'd it returnd as soon with answering looks Of sympathie and love; there I had fixt  Mine eyes till now, and pin'd with vain desire..."
