Perfect Vision

Grail

“The knights fell on their knees in awe and reverence, whereupon he that seemed a bishop turned to them and said, ‘I am Joseph of Arimathea, and I am come to show you the perfect Vision of the Holy Grail.’ On the instant there appeared before them, without veil or cover, the holy vessel, in a radiance of light such as almost blinded them.”

— Illustration by Walter Enright (1879-1969), American artist who studied at the Chicago Art Institute. In addition to his work for newspapers he illustrated children’s books, including Father Goose’s Yearbook by L. Frank Baum. His wife, Maginel Wright Enright Barney (1881-1966) was also a children’s book illustrator and graphic artist, as well as the younger sister of Frank Lloyd Wright.
