Additional Information: In February of 1984 Mary Black wrote a letter to the owner of
this painting, [responding to a letter written by Robert Bishop] she copied Robert
Bishop, then director of the American Folk Art Museum. She shared that the picture “fit
into a group of religious paintings produced along the Hudson in the years between
about 171700 to about 1750. The Albany provenance appears to confirm this grouping.
The only other religious painting that is dated is the 1713 “Birth of the Virgin,” signed by
Gerardus Duyckinck”.

Cupid Directs Young Lovers Toward Shore, Folk Watercolor
Date/Period: 1817

Measurement: Frame: 25.25" x 20.25"; view: 21.5" x 16.5"

Material: Watercolor and gouache on paper watermarked: Whatman Turkey Hill Mill.
The work is conservation mounted within a gilt git Sully style frame of the period.

Condition: Overall minor to moderate foxing, very minor fading/pigment loss as

Additional Information: It's been suggested that the classical building on the shoreline
is Andalusia, the estate of Nicholas Biddle (1786-1844). Located along the Delaware
River, just north of Philadelphia. Fantasized mountains are often present in early
American folk paintings, especially landscapes from the Hudson and Delaware River
regions. Biddle, American financier, served as president of the Second Bank of the
United States. Andalusia was built in 1794 by John Craig, who named the house after
the Andalusia region of Spain. In 1806 it was expanded in a Grecian style. Biddle
married Craig's daughter, Jane, and the couple resided there from 1821-1844.
Andalusia is a prominent Philadelphia landmark and has remained in the Biddle family
ever since.

19th Century Allegorical Painting, WE OWE ALLEGIANCE TO NO CROWN
Ms. Liberty & War of 1812 Sailor, Popular Symbol of American Pride
Anonymous, after John Archibald Woodside, We Owe Allegiance to No Crown, entire view

Oil on pine panel (Frame: 15" x 10.5"; view: 11" x 6.5")
Lady Liberty with Phrygian hat crowns the sailor valiantly holding the American flag with
a laurel leaf wreath. Depicting the small yet effective US Navy that greatly contributed to
the defeat of Britain [War of 1812] is the small ship in background. The picture displays
well, there appears to be no inpainting; a tight shrinkage fissure was stabilized by
affixing a narrow strip of pine to the verso.

Exhibited: American Visions of Liberty & Freedom at the Virginia Historical Society,
Richmond, Virginia (and seven other museum venues; the painting is published within
the exhibit brochure which is included).
