Charming Early Naïve Evocative Painting.....SALE PENDING
New England, ca. 1820-1840. Oil on thick pine panel, the paint and panel dry in surface. Polychrome rendered during a period in which any paint had to be hand-made for self use, indicating that these vignettes had to each be significant to the artist. The upper right shows a cool stylized cat above a decorative urn, the bottom perhaps the artist’s horse next to what could be a self-portrait, with the painting centered by a oversized flower. Housed in a "killer" mustard-painted frame with superb complementary color and surface to the painting. Frame size about 15 inches x 12. Condition is terrific. The hanging hole near the bottom was probably present prior to the painting. Provenance: Found in the 1980’s by Robert Thayer in Connecticut.
