Antique Folk Art Portrait Painting Edgefield South Carolina Toy Horse Blocks
Antique Folk Art Portrait Painting Edgefield South Carolina. The boy is on a primitive horse holding the reins and a box of blocks. There is an image of a man in the portrait also, At first I thought it was a paint over but I think it was intentional, you can see the mans nose and mouth just left of the childs face. Written in pencil on the back say Miss Mims and in heavy ink or paint it say Edgefield South Carolina. With a piece of cloth nailed to the corner.
It has been repaired in the past. Size of canvas is 24x 20.
I wish I knew the story behind it. I date it to the Civil War era or earlier. Maybe a Son who never met his father or vise versa. It is signed but I cant make it out and there appears to be some writing on the wood slats. Thank you and good luck.
