Description

A few years ago J.J. Tissot dawned upon the world of art with new views of the Holy Land through modern eyes, that was startlingly realistic. In this charming little miracle play in which a wealthy rounder is transported from the Great White Way to the lonely desert to meditate upon the holy truths of a little pamphlet a Salvation Army lass has thrust in his careless hand, the three wise men come out of the East, on camels as of old, and impress the scornful eye of doubt. The young man follows them under the guiding star of Bethlehem, to their destination, but is refused admission to the lonely stable until he cleanses his soul. Then he awakens from his dream, sanctified by the lesson of the ages.
