Happy Fourth of July!!!



The above piece depicts a Fourth of July parade in a small New England town and is by American primitive folk artist Jane Wooster Scott. Originally from Philadelphia, Scott moved West to California to "get into show business". The turning point in her artist's career was when she had a joint showing with actor Jonathan Winters at the Ankrum Gallery in Los Angeles. Scott is known as one of America's  most highly reproduced artists and her themes are American of the early 20Th century...
