SOLD
A strong, vibrant, and striking American folk art pastel portrait on paper. The nice looking gentleman is depicted in a black coat with a blue vest, a black tie highlighted with a gold metal pin and chain.

The strong modeling and treatment of the face coloration is exceptional, and, while I have not yet done so, an artist attribution should be able to be made. This work is in exceptional condition, with no tears or restoration. There is a small area near the left lapel of the coat where the cr...

A wonderful double sided smalt trade sign for D.M. Woodward, Doctor of Chiropractic. The gilded letters and the black smalt background are virtually intact and vibrant. The frame is original, and measures 28 3/4 inches by 14 inches by 2 inches deep. There is a small sliver out of the frame at one upper edge, and a small gap in the frame at the corner. Aside from these very minor flaws, the piece is in excellent condition.

In addition to being a wonderful piece of American folk art, this watercolor and pen and ink on paper gives some good insight into one of the courting customs of the 18th and 19th centuries. Often, when young people were "seeing" each other, they would leave little love notes in prearranged places for their partner, either to arrange a tryst, or just to express their feelings.

This charming painting depicts just such an instance, with the attractive young woman leaving a note in the hollow ...

Showing the whimsy that exemplifies good American folk art, this watercolor double portrait depicts a young man and woman who are clearly siblings. The artist achieved a starkness by having them in black clothing and not accentuating the details of their garb. In fact, the basic touches of color are only the blue in the girl's eyes and in the sky against which they are posed. Note that neither sitter is gazing directly at the viewer, nor are they looking in the same direction. The combination of...

$1,095.00
This is a charmingly rendered watercolor on paper portrait of an attractive little girl, leaning against a hillock of red flowers amidst green foliage. The artist has chosen to omit details in the background, and, instead, draws the viewer's focus to the subject by limning her dress in a bright blue, and having her hold several flowers in her hand. The work possesses a whimsy and naivete that brings a smile to one's face, as good folk art often does.

Sight size is 6 3/4" by 5 1/2", and ...

This painting epitomizes all the characteristics one looks for in a folk art portrait, including the whimsy that is so delightful. Note the vibrant colors, unusual treatment of anatomical features (the shortened arm, for example), and embellishments such as the chair, bonnet, shawl, book, and sheet music. All of these add up to a wonderful example for any collector of American folk art, or just as a superb display piece.

The painting is oil on artist's board, and is in exceptional condition,...

A truly captivating portrait on paper, of New England origin, of a young girl holding a basket of greens recently picked from the field she is standing in.

The condition is excellent, with vibrant colors, no tears, holes, inpainting, etc. Please note that the actual painting is much better in person ...
