A wonderful whimsical Folk Painting by Elizabeth H.Reed that won first place at the Tennessee State Fair in the year 1936. The oil on board has political over-tones which were not lost on the judges who still remember Herbert Hoover’s “a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage.” Well some Tennessee folks got a few wayward chickens and felt like a horse’s rear during the great depression. This painting was displayed at the capital in Nashville as part of recognizing artist during the federal art project of the 1930’s and early 40’s. In closing this painting exhibits a lot of sweat and tears and heart and soul.
