A wonderful example of southern American folk art. Southern folk art is very desirable and highly collected. This piece is quite unusual for several reasons: it is done on blue paper, and has the name of the artist (Sarah M. Daye), the location it was done (Charlottesville Seminary), and the date (1851). It depicts a young girl outdoors, feeding treats to her two dogs as a method of training them. The title, "Who Speaks First," is done in calligraphy at the bottom.

The sight size is is 12 1/2" by 9 7/8", and the framed size is 14 1/2" by 12". The condition is excellent, with no tears or creases. There are a few very small paper scrapes in the upper left which are totally non-obtrusive. The frame is period gilt on gesso and has some minor nicks. This is a truly exceptional piece in many ways. All the painting and pen and ink work itself is crisp, in spite of the blurry photo
