Question

Harvest Girl  
Hello. I am desperately trying to gather information on a picture my friend fell in love with. The picture was found on Facebook without any artist information. My friend would love to have a print or copy of the picture. Could you please take a look and see what you can find, or if there is a better avenue I should take, could you point me in the correct direction? Thank you for your time. I am hoping to find something out by Christmas, my friend would be thrilled to find a copy under her tree. Sincerely, Donelle Gregory

Answer
Sorry Donelle,

I can't help you but I have a suggestion.
You seem to have a very good picture of the painting, why not take it to a place like Office Max or another similar place or any printing company and have it blown up and then put it in a nice frame. Your friend will love it and it will probably look better than some mass produced print.

Sorry I couldn'd help more and good luck.

Expertise

Over the past 30 years, I have been researching the artist Ferdinand A. Brader and have become a bit of an expert. I can answer most questions regarding the drawings of F.A. Brader also known as Ferdinand A. Brader. Brader was an late 19th Century untrained(?)itinerant Folk Artist who throughout Pennsylvania and Ohio doing large pencil drawings (portraits) of farms and other dwellings and businesses. He worked from around 1876 to 1895. I'd love to hear about any Brader drawings you might have of know about... Check out my blog on Brader: http://ferdinandabrader.blogspot.com/ I can also answer questions about Antique Mid-Western Amish Quilts, especially those from the Ohio Amish. In addition, I can answer questions about other types of Antique American Quilts and other types of American Folk Art. Please note. I can only answer questions on AMERICAN items.
