Product Details

Original painting on board done in 1972 or 1973, measuring 14 x 11 inches, 17 x 14 inches including the two piece framing. The price includes the framing. The signature is very faded on this painting, and is hard to show in a photograph, but is clearly visible with tilting the painting to get the light hitting it at the correct angle. The photos of the back of the painting show a copy of what is written by hand that is actually attached to the back of the painting itself describing the purchase. Also on the back is our typed information of what the handwritten notes say, a few of the words in the original are hard to read.

Husband of famous folk artist, Maud Lewis, Everett worked as a farm labourer and as a fish peddler in his early years.After marrying Maud Dowley in 1938, he went to work as a night watchman at the Marshalltown Poor Farm.

It was Everett who encouraged Maud to paint and he bought her first set of oils.As a result of her rheumatoid arthritis she was unable to do housework, so Everett took care of the house and Maud brought in money with her paintings.As Maud aged, her hands got increasingly worse, and as her popularity grew, Everett had her draw her images on cardboard for him to cut out and her to use as templates to help facilitate productivity.

After Maud's death and his retirement, Everett made his own horse templates and began to paint maritime scenes and landscapes with animals and other subjects to try to supplement his income. His work has also become very collectible in recent years.
