19th Century Prairie Home Portrait

Measuring 13 1/2″ x 23 1/2″ sight in a 17 1/4″ x 27 1/2″ contemporary carved and gilt frame, this naive house portrait/landscape is oil on canvas laid down to masonite with otherwise minor restorations. The sod roof structure in the background would indicate a homestead location on the plains somewhere in the midwest. The surface has an overall cracquelure. The palette and naive rendering make this a very pleasing rendering. Signed lower left “N.M.Thomas.”
