The John Wesley Fellows meeting this January was held in Atlanta at Candler School of Theology, and its Dean, Dean Love is a collector of art for the seminary, with some 50 or so paintings now gracing the walls of their beautiful new seminary building. The art of choice comes from a West coast artist influenced by Hispanic or Latin American art, named John August Swanson. He has done a remarkable number of Biblical scenes, for instance above we have David and Goliath.
Here we have Jacob’s dream (above).
Above is the disciples with the great catch of fish.
Oops. This is a sideways picture of the Good Samaritan.
Here we have the raising of Lazarus.
Here is St. Michael slaying the dragon.
Here is a painting of scenes in stained glass in a cathedral. There are many more of this ilk in Candler’s new building.
