Missouri House Painter Circa 1955



An interesting piece of folk art which parallels and anticipates abstract expressionism and many other contemporary art movements. This panel is from the home of a African-American Missouri woman, who likely never considered herself an artist, and was not influenced by contemporary art trends, but who decorated every panel, nook and crannie in her home with paint applied to walls, panels, and cabinets. Most of these panels show bold geometric designs in bright colors. This panel is unusual for its horizontal lines and muted colors. Rare.
