The Veiled Bride
Simeon Solomon (1840 - 1905)
RA Collection: Art
A wood engraving by Dalziel after a design by Simeon Solomon, published in Good Words, (vol. 3, 1862, p. 592). The illustration is based on Genesis 24:62-67 in which Rebekah veils herself to meet her future husband, Isaac. In this scene her veil has slipped to her shoulders.
Solomon later produced a watercolour of the same scene retitled 'Isaac and Rebekah' (1863, Victoria and Albert Museum https://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O126679/isaac-and-rebekah-watercolour-solomon-simeon/).
