Growing Toward Peace: prophets

Growing Toward Peace, by Regina Tor and Eleanor Roosevelt. 1960. No mention of artist.

 

I found this book at a book market several years ago with the simple title, "Growing Toward Peace" in typical Roman letters. It's a book co-authored by Regina Tor and Eleanor Roosevelt for the United Nations and was published by Random House in 1960. Interesting book, talking mostly about all the various programs that the UN has to offer: UNICEF, UNESCO, FAO, WHO, etc. But the main reason I bought it was for the illustrations found throughout. And should I even have mention this?— there's no mention of who did them. (Although there's a slight possibility that it could be Ben Shahn.)

 

This was one of the strongest illustrations found in the book, of three prophets. (The subject was of peace throughout the ages.) Nice linework and the subtle use color.
