In the settlements of the East Coast during the Colonial period, portraiture was the most important form of painting. Artists generally focused on that which they considered most important in a portrait: the material wealth of the subjects as shown by their clothing and accessories. These enchanting portraits of children, all from the American Folk Art Museum collection, charm the observer. All of the artworks are featured in Self-Taught Genius: Treasures from the American Folk Art Museum. Includes twenty blank cards with five different images, and envelopes. 7 x 5 inches.
