Carved Folk Art Polychrome Walking Stick
Likely Southern US, ca. late 19th century. Graceful carving. ITS ALL ABOUT THE PAINT. Eye popping and dazzling patterning. Avant-garde for the period in which it was made. Superb condition with scattered wear. About 38 inches long. May rest on a flat surface, or be positioned vertically (comes with a wall mount). Provenance: Southern Collection; David Wheatcroft. By the same hand as a similar cane exhibited at the Brookln Musuem and Los Angeles Museum of Art in 1976, the seminal exhibition of American folk sculpture. Happy to send photos from that exhibition.
