Folk Art Painting, Darby & Joan, OH THE DAYS WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
Anonymous…a loving virtuous couple, an archetype for old age
Date/Period: Circa 1835


Folk Art Painting, Darby & Joan, OH THE DAYS WHEN WE WERE YOUNG Anonymous…a loving virtuous couple, an archetype for old age

Measurement: Frame: 21.5" x 27.75"; view: 16.75" x 23"

Material: Oil on canvas

Condition: Very good

Additional Information: “Darby and Joan” is a proverbial phrase for a married couple
sharing life of mutual devotion. The names belong to a ballad written by Henry Woodfall
[worked for John Darby]; the characters are John Darby who died in 1731 and his wife.
John Darby and his wife were coined in the poem by Henry Woodfall published in The
Gentleman’s Magazine in 1735. The couple were popular characters that continued to
be mentioned within writings, theater, and now television. A version of this imagery is
published on the cover of an Old Sturbridge Village booklet by Gerald Carlson
titled Rum And Reform IN Old New England. Old Sturbridge Village owns a version of
this genre painting by William Mathew Prior. Darby and Joan Clubs were established
by the Women’s Voluntary Service after World War II.
