Edward Hicks - part 2

Edward Hicks (1780 – 1849) was an American folk painter and distinguished minister of the Society of Friends. He became a Quaker icon because of his paintings. For full biographical notes on Hicks, and for earlier works, see part 1 also.

At first glance a lot of these images look the same, but they were painted over many years and each has subtle differences and nuances. This is part 2 of a 2-part post on the works of Edward Hicks:
