Ruth is a mythological figure that appears both in the Talmud & the Christian Old Testament who made regular appearances in common household devotional art in the 19th & early 20th centuries. She is upheld as a role model of kindness, charity, & nurturing for women, and is also one of the key figures in fraternal groups like the Order of the Eastern Star. This gorgeous, early 20th century lithograph print is dated 1901 & depicts Ruth with a scythe & a sheaf of wheat. The gilded wood frame dates to the same period, though the framing job itself was more recent & professionally done with a pretty pink mat. Very good condition overall with a small flaw on the mat in the upper right corner, where there had been some sort of tag. 27” tall.
