About the Work

Two yoked oxen with bells and chain pull a loaded sled in this delightful oil painting by folk artist Maud Lewis. A man in a red hat urges the oxen along the winter road. This painting is signed and framed. Maud Lewis’s paintings are filled with joy and depict her surroundings with humor and affection. Created in bright, solid colors with a flattened picture plane, Lewis's paintings charm viewers with such subjects as winter landscapes with sleighs, deer in forest, oxen and her cats both wide eyed and frowning. Towards the end of her life, Lewis gained celebrity thanks to a 1965 CBC documentary and a feature in the Toronto Star newspaper. Most recently, a feature film based on her life, "Maudie," was released in 2016. Starring Ethan Hawke and Sally Hawkins, the film captures the essence of Lewis's constrained life and the paintings that allowed her imagination to escape its confines.
