Gorgeous linen with beautiful rich red, deep turquoise and royal blue and muted harvest mustard gold print of the three wise men bearing gifts: these are excellent graphics in bold, vivid colors. Also has the guiding star, and a wavy woolen sheep as design elements.
Measures a huge 24.25" long by 8.5" across. (62 cm x 20.5 cm). Mounted on a dowel with a string for hanging.
Signed /copyrighted "Wert", titled "Plowshares". Also says "By Hand", and "Linen" as part of the small print at the bottom.
This also has a paper label at the bottom on the back stating: "Country Prints (registered mark) are designed by Robert Darr Wert & hand screen printed on pure linen by our neighbors in our barn studio in Gill * Massachusetts."
Wert's works are becoming increasingly desirable, and highly collectible; he is described as an Americana Country Folk Artist by many.
This is in absolutely like-new condition; we have it stored in a tube so it hangs straight without wrinkles or creases.
Fabulous Christmas decoration, wonderful gift idea for any avid collector of MCM screen printers work.
Vintage 1950s, very early 1960s.
This is light, but will need to be rolled and shipped in a tube which adds to the weight. If we can ship for less, we will.
