Ferdinand Brader / Pencil Drawing, Residence of Henry and Priscilla Heisa
Jackson Tp: Stark County Ohio. 1888. Signed and numbered: F. A. Brader No. 602 - SOLD


Antique Pencil Drawing by Ferdinand Brader, Residence of Henry and Priscilla Heisa, 1888, entire view

Ferdinand A. Brader (1833-1901)
Graphite on paper, signed lower right, sight 31 by 47”
Henry (1847-1916) and Priscilla Tritt (1852-1928) Heisa had four children
See the Legacy of Ferdinand A. Brader, Kathleen Wieschaus-Voss, editor.

Itinerant artist Ferdinand A. Brader was commissioned by referrals; the artist often created drawings in exchange for room and board. He began his career in Berks County, Pennsylvania, later he traveled to Ohio; this work was created in Stark County, Ohio, a community frequented by Brader. In 1896 the Heisa farm was documented on a map of the region; Brader produced drawings of several adjacent farms.

The detail depicted in Brader’s work was accurate, faithful to reality, including the perceived ages of the people depicted. It is likely that the numbers and types of animals imitated those actually on the farm. The two men, rendered in the lower left of the composition, are frequently found in Brader’s drawings; scholars suggest that they represent Brader and the owner of the farm negotiating the artist’s commission. A dog accompanies these men in the works created during the 1888 – 1889 period. Brader faithfully numbered his drawings, the highest number recorded is 980. For more information about the artist, see The Legacy of Ferdinand A. Brader
