      About the Artwork

      The common myth is that the Desiderata poem was found in a Baltimore church in 1692 and is of unknown origin. In fact it was written around 1920 (and copyrighted in 1927) as 'Go Placidly Amid The Noise And Haste' by lawyer Max Ehrmann (1872-1945) of Terre Haute Indiana USA. The myth began after Reverend Frederick Kates reproduced the poem in a collection of inspirational works for his congregation in 1959 on church notepaper headed: 'The Old St Paul's Church Baltimore AD 1692' (the year the church was founded). Since Ehrmann’s death confusion has surrounded the Desiderata copyright.
