Folk Painting of George Washington by Michigan Barber Cyrus T. Fuery
Exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, 1976
Date/Period: Dated 1917


Folk Painting of George Washington by Michigan Barber Cyrus T. Fuery Exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, 1976, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 36.75" x 47.5"; view: 29.75" x 40.5"

Material: Oil on canvas over the original wooden strainer, modern gilded frame.

Condition: Excellent…There are tiny, patched repairs.

Additional Information: If George Washington were painted by Andy Warhol for a
Campbell Soup can, he might look a good deal like this modernistic, 1917 interpretation
by Cyrus T. Fuery, a barber from Parma, Michigan. Dated 1917 (the first year of U.S.
involvement in WWI) and signed on the reverse.

Fuery’ s oversized canvas (30 x 40.5 inches) shows the hand of an accomplished folk
artist. His treatment of the angular facial features, serpentine brow, and hair are
whimsical, bold, and appealing.

One other work by Feury is known, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln, which is said to have
hung in his barbershop. The whereabouts of the Lincoln portrait are currently unknown.

Provenance: This work was exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum
in Colonial Williamsburg in a special patriotic exhibit for the 1976 Bicentennial curated
by then-curator Don Walters, the esteemed folk-art expert and long-time antiques
dealer.

George Washington, A Superb Large Portrait
by Philadelphia Artist Robert Street
After Gilbert Stuart
Date/Period: Early 19th Century - SOLD


George Washington, A Superb Large Portrait by Philadelphia Artist Robert Street After Gilbert Stuart, entire view

Measurement: Frame: 27" x 31"; view: 19" x 22.75"

Material: Oil on canvas

Condition: Excellent with only negligible… extremely minor trivial retouching by Tom
Yost. The canvas has been relined; The current frame and mat housing the portrait
were fabricated for this painting are of the fine finest quality.

Additional Information: Attributed, Robert Street (1796-1865) Although painted in the
manner of Gilbert Stuart, the portrait is in a unique, distinctive style and, seen in person,
exudes a quality which might best be described as luminous. It is certainly a fine portrait
of this Founding Father. A nearly identical portrait by Street is in the collection of the
Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.

A highly respected and popular portraitist of his time, Robert Street also created
historical and Biblical scenes. Nothing is known of his life before 1815 when he first
exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy except that he was born in Germantown,
Pennsylvania. He continued to exhibit at the Academy in 1817, 1818, and 1822. In 1824
he showed three historical paintings in Washington, D.C., in the same year he painted a
portrait of Andrew Jackson, which later hung in the White House. In 1834, he painted
Joseph Bonaparte, the oldest brother of Napoleon, who was living on an estate in
Bordentown, New Jersey. In 1840 a major exhibition of his work was held at the Artists
Fund Hall in Philadelphia. The show was catalogued and included 172 works by Street
and fifty paintings by past artists. He also participated in group shows at the Artists
Guild until 1845; at the Franklin Institute in 1847 and 1851; at the Pennsylvania
Academy of the Fine Arts until 1861; and at the Apollo Association in New York in 1838
and 1839. Interestingly, four of his children, by three different wives, also became
artists.

Folk Art, British Soldier on Horseback, Watercolor and Photograph Composition
R. Sinclair. Late 10th Hussars, 123 Northgate Street, Canterbury, Dec. 7th, 1878
By Richard Sinclair, (Specialist in military subjects) Late 19th Century, entire view

Richard John Sinclair was born in Dublin about 1845; Richard served with the 10th Royal Hussars at Dublin on the 14th September, 1865. Sinclair established his studio in Northgate shortly after his discharge from the army. The majority of his watercolors depict soldiers of cavalry regiments standing in front of or on horseback with rustic backgrounds. The heads of the soldiers are actual sepia photographs, presumably of the purchaser of the paintings. The 1881 census records Richard John Sinclair's occupation as military artist and in 1891 as artist�with no mention of photography. In 1891his son Richard (aged 15) is listed as a photographer's apprentice. The 1901 census lists Richard John Sinclair as a military artist and photographer; son Richard and daughter Maude as photographer's assistants. (Photo of face is faded, otherwise good condition; matted and mounted in attractive modern frame measuring: 26 by 19.5", sight-size: 2 by 15.5")
