Description: Henry J. Soulen, Sinai, A Pilgrimage to Palestine . Signed “H. J. Soulen l.r.; titled “A Pilgrimage to Palestine, Feb [1927]...” on the stretcher” verso. Oil on canvas. 34 x 34 in. (86.4 x 86.4 cm). This title Sinai is the title apparently by family consensus. However, the inscription below the photograph in the article of the artist noted previously reads “Soulen Painting Sinai.” From the Ladies’’ Home Journal , December 1926, page 32: There could be no more appropriate issue in which to begin Harry Emerson Fosdick’’s A Pilgrimage to Palestine than the Christmas Journal. We believe the Family will share our opinion that this is among the most important series of articles we have ever published. When Doctor Fosdick first contemplated his journey, it was necessary to find an artist to accompany him. Henry J. Soulem was chosen. Throughout the series Soulen’’s brush will depict the sacred terrain which Fosdick discussed. When Soulen sent his first group of sketches to Independence Square a letter came with them. It was a long letter radiating an impressive enthusiasm. He stirred our own imagination and we are passing on ... these paragraphs from it: "A number of persons told me, before I left America, that I would be disappointed by the artistic possibilities of Palestine. They agreed that it was burned up and uninteresting. I am quite sure now that they hadn’’t seen much of the real country.In the cities, includimg Jerusalem, familiarity with tourists has made the natives more or less uninteresting. But, in the vilages and the wilderness, conditions are as they were thousands of years ago. You will see acres of wheat in the fertile valleys, to be reaped with sickle. The costumes are the same... It is only because we judge Bible stories by our own standards that any of them sound improbable."After my experience of living in the desert, I have begun to understand these stories. Soulen spent several months traveling through the Mid-East under the most rigorous of conditions. This lot and lot 107 were painted along with sketches and other paintings during this trip. A photo of the artist painting or sketching Mt. Sinai from the perspective of the current lot and a detail of the photograph of Soulen seated on a Sheik’’s right, both shown here, appeared in the article quoted above.
