Canadian. 1916. Wool/burlap. A tour de force, and disputably Ontario's most recognizable hooked rug. Featured in "Canadian Folk Art to 1950", Rowan/Fleming/Chambers, (p.5). Rowan et al note, "The graphic and visually appealing composition of this hooked rug could scarcely be improved upon." The strong colours and stature of the man are imposing. Found in Burgessville, Ontario and dated 1916. 40" x 29". Jim/Ilona Fleming Collection. $4000/6000.
