A gorgeous scene of skaters on an icy pond from an original Maud Lewis painting. Adorable kids holding hands and having some good ol' jolly fun, you can almost hear the joy and the laughter. A cute dog running along side the horse and sleigh. A picture perfect wonderful Christmas addition to any home.
Reproduced from a stunning original painting by the incredible and now iconic Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis. Maud was uniquely creative, self-taught, specialized in painting everyday rural life, loved animals and appreciated the beauty of nature.
The story is a long one from Chad Brown in Halifax, Nova Scotia. He owns the original collection from Bill Ferguson who was a Maud Lewis collector and promoter. Bill Ferguson signed a contract with Maud and Everett in 1962 to reproduce the work with no terms. The collection was made to try and highlight Maud's work as an artist and gain more popularity for her. Permission was given for the images to be used freely and with love.
