We prefer a broad definition of Folk Art to include items made from untrained hands and eyes such as textiles, two and three dimensional art, utilitarian objects with or without flourishes, handcrafted furniture and tabletop objects. Most of our folk art is represented in very early American objects with more recent inclusions of contemporary art and sculpture.
A wonderful Folk Art carving which came directly from the Hypoint Collection, having initially hung on a barn or similar building in Illinois. This fellow has a unique form with a distinctive comb and wattles. “Big Red” sports a dry red surface and all original paint. A newer metal stand has been created for his piece.
