Noah's Ark by Linda Falken, Metropolitan Museum of Art

This beautiful retelling of Noah's Ark is told via paintings and drawings in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There are many retellings of the story but most are mass market, unattractive editions. This book is sophisticated and upmarket. Featured artists include: Gustave Courbet, Marc Chagall, John Henry Dearle, Lodewijk Tieling, Aurelio Luini, Giulio Bonasone, Jacob Bouttats, and Joseph Anton Koch.


A visually rich, majestic version of the familiar story. --Carolyn Phelan Booklist
