Queen Esther is one of Minerva Teichert's relatively few subjects from the Old Testament. The painting reflects Teichert's interest in the role of women, and their impact in history.
Like her various paintings of Pioneer Women, this image of Esther reflects the quiet dignity of a woman with a mission that may require great hardship. It represents a fine statement of courage and faith that can inspire us even today.
The story of Esther can be a special inspiration to the young women of today. Esther's example can give them courage to stand up for proper values, even when the decision to do so is extremely difficult.
