Folk Art Portrait, Young Boy Holding Red Book
Confidently Attributed: Ralph D. Curtis
(1808-1885) New York State
Oil on hand hewn cleated poplar panel


Folk Art Portrait, Young Boy Holding Red Book
Confidently Attributed: Ralph D. Curtis (1808-1885) New York State
Oil on hand hewn cleated poplar panel, entire view

Of the fifty extant works only one is signed, all but one, are painted on panel; most of his
portraits, as is the case with this portrait, were never framed. Stylistic traditions/features
of this hand include the long face and high prominent forehead; faces are simply
modeled and display a dark outline; noses are often elongated…bushy eyebrows and a
deep philtrum. This lad’s forefinger and thumb are hidden in and behind the book which
is typical of Curtis. Scattered fill and glazing displays well. (18 x 22 inches)
See Magazine Antiques, Ralph D. Curtis: A Nineteenth Century Folk Artist Identified by
J.E. Jelineck, November 2009, pp. 109 to 113.

Vintage Portrait, African American Gentleman, African American Southern Artist Signed in brick red paint: Spencer, Likely Circa 1900 Oil on academy


Vintage Portrait, African American Gentleman, African American Southern Artist
Signed in brick red paint: Spencer, Likely Circa 1900
Oil on academy, entire view

All we know is that “SPENCER” was likely a nomadic portraitist traveling the Southern
United States after the Civil War through the turn of the twentieth century…perhaps
through the 1920s and 1930s. We have other information suggesting that he was active
in Georgia and Richmond 1865-1872 capturing the images of ordinary people and well-
known Abolitionists active during the tragedy of this most unfortunate period in history.

We have sold two other paintings by SPENCER and are very pleased to present this
portrait (and another). We know of approximately eight portraits that were found in a
Georgia estate, all depicting African American subjects: most signed SPENCER in brick
red paint [this one in oyster white paint]. The sitters were ministers, church related; a
woman celebrating her beauty, and a soldier. A group of three portraits of Abolitionists
were in the “Freedmen’s Bureau, 10th Street Chapter” of Richmond, Virginia…these
were portraits of Sojourner Truth, Frederick Douglas and Harriet Tubman. The extant
portraits that we have represented other than a gentleman’s portrait painted on sheet
iron were found in the previously mentioned Georgia estate; we have a copy of the old-
time collector’ s obituary which may lead to a possible journey of discovery.
