Early 1900's Folk Art Hand Carved Hand Painted Guinea Bird
Offering this wonderful and unusual small hand carved and hand painted guinea bird dating from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. Guinea birds are very rarely the subject of carvers, who most often carve song bird, water birds and prey birds, making this quite an unusual and delightful find! This is skillfully and realistically carved and painted down to the most minute detail. It stands just 5″ tall and about 4″ from beak to tail. It shows some minor wear to the wood legs (see photos) and light wear to the paint finish, some minor flaking of the paint revealing the wood underneath. For its age, it’s in great condition and displays well. Obviously from a talented artist, it is unmarked. This was found in Southern Pennsylvania and I believe it to be a local piece. A fine addition to any carved bird collection! The item “Early 1900’s Folk Art Hand Carved Hand Painted Guinea Bird” is in sale since Sunday, April 19, 2020.

Alabama Outsider Artist Mose Tolliver Folk Art Art Painting. Black Bird. Signed
For sale is an original folk art painting by the legendary Alabama outsider artist Mose Tolliver (1920/25 – 2006). Provenance: Single owner collection, Private Atlanta Georgia Estate. This painting is acrylic on cut particle board. It features a well known image of a black bird. Tolliver painted this image numerous times. A fine outsider work from a renowned American Folk Artist. Signed Mose T on bottom. Condition: Board cut slightly off square. Top right corner not squared but painted over as normal and intended by the artist. Measurements: 16 1/8 x 17 1/2(approximately). Left side is cut uneven. Angles from 17 across on bottom and top measures 17 3/4. (17 1/2 in middle). Mose Tolliver (1920/25 – 2006). One of the most highly regarded American self- taught artists began life as the son of a sharecropper and farm overseer on the Rittenour farm. Mose Tolliver was the youngest of seven sons born into the Ike Tolliver family of twelve children. Olive School briefly through the third grade. I didn’t like school. I remember I wanted to be outdoors working with my older brothers or even stacking wood. One thing I remember about our farm house, it was just a shack, but my Mama had pictures all over the walls. Then after his father had died, when his mother was elderly, he moved with her into the city of Montgomery and lived in the same house. Mose became a gardener and took care of many fine yards. Known for having an artistic flare for landscaping, he was given free rein by some of his clients to arrange bedding plants. Occasionally, he also painted houses inside and out, and was a’jack-of-all-trades’ for repair jobs involving plumbing and carpentry. Mose met and married Willie Mae Thomas in the early 1940’s and fathered eleven children, seven sons and four daughters. Two other children died in infancy. There in the late 1960’s a crate of marble fell from a fork-lift and crushed Mose’s left ankle and damaged leg tendons and muscles which left him unable to walk without assistance. A couple of years after the accident and after a period of drunken depression, Mose was encouraged to try oil painting by Raymond McLendon, one of his former employers. McLendon painted with oils on canvas and Mose had, on occasion watched him paint. Noting his fascination, McLendon tried to persuade Mose to take lessons at his expense intending to provide an alternative pastime to Mose’s drinking alcohol. Mose elected to teach himself and painting became routine activity for him. It was a rehabilitative experience. At first he painted birds, flowers and tree forms later adding people and other animals. I probably would never have painted if I hadn’t gotten hurt. I would still be working with plants and yards. He began to obey an inner compulsion to create art in his own unique way at an amazing rate. Mose began to paint on any surface-furniture, scraps, plywood packing crate sides, Masonite, metal trays, board remnants, old bureaus, table tops, or other abandoned surfaces given to him. Mose uses what he calls “pure paint, ” which is house paint–oil base at first, and more recently water-based latex. Although his palette almost always is limited to two or three hues from the cans available at hand, Mose’s color schemes are generally harmonious and sophisticated. His inventive use of a variety of improvised hanging devises (and later metal can rings) on his work indicated a natural creativity that often goes hand in hand with poverty and necessity. Then after moving to his present Sayre Street home, his front porch became a virtual gallery with Mose offering to sell paintings to anyone who admired them. An early admirer who brought his work to public attention was Mitchell Kahan, former curator at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts. In 1981, the museum mounted a one-man exhibition of Mose’s work. In an essay published in the exhibition brochure, Kahan pointed out the element of humor in Mose’s work, … The naiveté of the improbable and bizarrely constructed animals is comical in a charming way. Results from the unintentional discrepancy between the painted image and the real-life source… Often the humor is linked to elements of fantasy and eroticism. In the first article published about Mose in February 1981 in the Montgomery Advertiser, he is quoted as saying, I’m not interested in Art. I just want to paint my pictures. In the same article the late Dr. Robert Bishop, Director of the Museum of American Folk Art said of Mose’s paintings, You can hang him beside a Picasso, and you have the same kind of creativity and deep personal vision. More than a decade has passed since these major exhibitions. Mose’s wife, Willie Mae, died in the Spring of 1991 and two of Mose’s children, Annie and Charles, have emerged as painters, on their own. Creating art has remained virtually the same for Mose except for a marked increase in his notoriety. Mose still paints while seated on the edge of his bed, his walker at arm’s length away. At the foot of his bed is a paint-spattered cabinet holding, at hand, his materials. I love to paint. I paint what I feel like painting–what is in my head. Hardly a day goes by that Mose is without a visitor seeking his work. Often works are requested; sometimes photographs are left with Mose on which to base “commissions” which he routinely seeks help to fulfill. Two aspects of his work, among others, have remained constant throughout his career: Mose gives names to his paintings that show a strong connection to fantasy; and images that are popular with the purchasers are likely to be found repeated frequently. Mose has lived in his same modest home for more than twenty years, seemingly unaffected by his tremendous creative accomplishments.
