Description
More than 60 remarkable objects from the collection of folk art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, are presented here in captioned color plates and detail views, including paintings, carvings, needlework, ceramics, furniture, weather vanes—and yes, duck decoys—dating from the late 1700s to the early 1900s. Exploring the elusive notion of "folk art" (a 20th-century concept embracing the creative impulses of people who haven't studied art), the book brings to light such little-heralded masterpieces as Erastus Salisbury Field's lush The Garden of Eden; E.L. George's surrealistic Child in a Rocking Chair; a complex, monumental quilt by the former slave Harriet Powers; and Wilhelm Schimmel's extraordinary carved animals, which he made to barter for beer.
