Important Mourning Painting, Schoolgirl Folk Art
New England, Circa 1820-1830
Anonymous…a superb example of enormously
popular schoolgirl art
Watercolor and foil on velvet, strong bright
original color, fine condition - SOLD



Although displaying ubiquitous symbols of mourning, the tomb, mourners, and willow
tree being standard attributes of death, the mourning picture does not create a mood of
sadness. The unknown young artist excelled in this exercise, likely an important part of
her curriculum at a female seminary to which she devoted much time. The complexity of
composition, good sense of design, and the handling of details, fluid brushwork, and the
application of gold foil to the weathervane and dog collar speak to the inspired
instruction she received. The pastoral quality of landscape setting, tight vignettes,
abundant detail…dwellings, bridge, the renderings of different types of foliage; the
bridge, a spotted dog, three birds and a fence de-emphasize the mourning iconography.
Herringbone brush strokes creating the foliage of the iconic drooping willow at the
forefront imitate the texture of needlework stitches employed in embroidery of the
period. Centering the work are grieving figures at the tomb in the foreground which is
surmounted with a festooned urn; the tomb is vacant of inscription probably anticipating
a future need. The picture is mounted within the original gilt frame under an eglomise
glass having a black enamel and gold leaf border matt; original backboard; excellent
original condition. (Frame: 29.75 by 24.75"; view: 27 by 22")
