Pair of Folk Art Watercolors, Sister and Sister with Doll and Basket of Flowers
Early 19th Century
Charmingly detailed watercolors on paper of two sisters in matching dresses, each holding her treasured possession of the day. With much of their lives ahead, the sisters, close in age at the sitting, are competently captured in their shared expressions of youth, beauty, and the promise of so much more still to come. Although apparently not twins, these sisters exude the sophisticated, yet folky, charm the most advanced folk art collector will treasure while searching out fine examples of children captured in any folk art medium. Charming, charming, charming!
Second quarter of the 19th Century. Found in New York State.
Dimensions: 9.5 by 7.75” frame; 7.5 by 5.75” sight-size.
