Tom Lydon (B. 1944) "Flag over Field"

Lot 0034 Details

Description
Tom Lydon (American, B. 1944) "Flag over Field" Signed lower right. Original Chalk on Paper.

Provenance: Collection of James A. Helzer (1946-2008), Founder of Unicover Corporation.

This painting originally appeared on the Fleetwood First Day Cover of the 32c Flag Over Field ATM Self-Adhesive stamp issued March 17, 1995.

Inspiring the viewer to recall the immortal words of the patriotic hymn America the Beautiful, the flag flies proudly against the backdrop of spacious skies, waving over the amber waves of grain for which America is justly famous. Besides being raised daily over America's vast tracts of fertile farmland, the Stars and Stripes have waved in many locations around the world -- and on other worlds. Reputedly designed by Betsy Ross in 1776, it wasn't until August 16, 1777, that Old Glory saw its first Revolutionary War battle. It was carried by American troops in the Battle of Bennington on the New York-Vermont border. Just a few months later -- on November 1, 1777 -- the Star-spangled Banner was hoisted aboard John Paul Jones' Ranger, the first time it flew on a U.S. Navy vessel. On December 1, 1777, that ship arrived in Nantes, France, marking the first time the American flag had ever flown in a foreign port. The flag initially reached Antarctica in 1840 and flew over the North Pole in 1909. It was erected there on April 6th by the U.S. Navy's Robert E. Peary. Painted on NASA space ships, the flag boldly ventured into outer space, and on July 20, 1969, a specially-created flag -- designed to fly in an airless environment -- was raised on the lunar surface by astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin.
