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.

Minerva Teichert presents us with the beautiful Queen Esther, a woman with courage who saved her people many years ago.
Esther's story lives today, and is celebrated each year on the Purim holiday, a joyous time for all Jewish people.
In 2018, Purim is celebrated on March 1 and March 2.

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.
