Revival: “2. Almost Persuaded” / Black ink / 22.75×35.5″ / 1976


For decades in the middle of her career, Eleanor Dickinson visited evangelical Christian Revival tents, documenting and building relationships with the rural Pentecostal communities.

Like many of her projects and media, this was not designed to be popular with the art establishment, but she felt it was important to compassionately and accurately depict misunderstood people.

The title refers to the chorus of a popular hymn.

One of a kind artwork.  See the About page for more information on charges, paper care, and related subjects.
