A marvelous folk painting with all the exuberance of an untrained effort. Signed on the verso - S B Rollins. This simple oil on board is bright and happy; it will make you smile every time you look at it. Naive paintings like this one are among my own personal favorites. American Folk Art for sure.
The beautiful antique frame is an intricate, compound gilt molding, very lavish, and the perfect foil for the simplicity of this straightforward image.
CONITION is excellent antique. There has been a bit of flaking at the center of the orange pansy, and one small scratch on the tan background. But I mention this only for accuracy, as none of it detracts from the immense charm of this piece. Measures 22 ½’ x 15 ¼” with a sight size of 18” x 10 ¾” - Weighs 4 lbs. 15 oz. - Signature on back is S B Rollins next to the numbers “1.25”
American folk paintings like this are highly sought after, their un-self conscious grace is simply delightful. Bring this beauty into your life, you'll love it. Enjoy!
