Huber Canvaswork Picture of a bluebird

Canvaswork Picture
Bluebird and Woodpecker
Massachusetts c.1750

This delightful canvaswork picture is one of a small group of similar mid-18th century needlework pictures stitched probably in or around Boston. They usually depict a bucolic setting with a tree dominated by a bird or squirrel, or a large vase of flowers.

On the original wooden backboard is a hand written label inscribed: S. Adams/ 18 Lynde Street and a Milwaukee Art Museum exhibition label.

Wool on linen; 12" x 10 ¾' framed.
