“Whale Sow Jona” by Charley Kinney

Whale Sow Jona” by Charley Kinney
Self-taught Kentucky artist Charley Kinney (1906-1991) loved what he called “old time tales,” including Biblical stories. This painting is his folky depiction (complete with brief narrative) of the Jonah and the Whale story at the point where the whale deposits Jonah on land. Graphite and tempera on paper. Image area is 28″ X 22″ in a shadow box frame. Excellent condition.
