Folk Art Courting Scene New England, Early 19th Century
Item Details
Description
Folk Art Courting Scene New England, early 19th century. This charming school girl watercolor courting scene depicts a couple in a bucolic setting with sheep in the foreground and in the background, on the far side of the river, stands a large center chimney house. The “shepherd” is placing a wreath of flowers on the head of a beautifully dressed young lady “shepherdess”. It was a delightful pastime for well to do young courting couples to dress up and venture into the countryside under the pretext of tending sheep. Note: There is a little foxing in the background paper and a small line of touchup painting across the bottom adjacent to the frame. 17 ½” x 20” sight.
