About the Work

Lobster traps and sailboats are featured in this delightful summer harbor scene by folk artist Maud Lewis. This painting by is signed and framed. Framed dimensions are 19 x 21 inches. The much loved folk artist Maud Lewis (1903-1970) is known for her colorful paintings of the landscape and communities of rural Nova Scotia. In 1938, Maud married Everett Lewis and moved into their one room house. Despite the hardships of poverty and advancing arthritis, Maud created a body of charming and cheerful paintings that belied her situation – the fluffy white and black cats, the jaunty sleighs on wintry roads, the oxen festooned with bells and more. Maud painted on whatever surface was available including clam shells, dust pans and the walls of her tiny home. Maud’s house was restored and is on permanent exhibit at Art Gallery of Nova Scotia which holds many of her paintings. Her artwork can also be found in the Canadian Museum of Civilization. She is the subject several biographies and two National Film Board of Canada documentaries. In 2017, a biopic of her life titled Maudie was released starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke.
