The Plates

Job is the “perfect and upright” man (Job, 1:1) who is punished by God for no apparent reason. Job is tormented but patient and suffers physical as well as mental pain. He loses all his possessions as well as his sons and sees those closest to him (his wife and friends) turn against him; but in the end, he is saved and redeemed.

The Book of Job is about a spiritual or mental journey as well as a change in perception. Job has to change not only how he thinks about himself but also about the God he worships. His transformation is rendered through resemblances of figures in the illustrations.

Four pairs have been chosen out of the 22 plates.  Each pair is discussed from the point of view of a shared theme which contributes to the momentum of the overall story of Job.
