Item #32501 Original puppet design of a young boy.
(Jerry, Cherry Barr)

Original puppet design of a young boy.

Jerry, Cherry Barr (illus.)

1935-1938. Signed by the artist, Cherry Barr Jerry. This painting depicts a rosy-cheeked young boy in a blue-collared shirt and patterned overalls. Jerry worked with a variety of media throughout her career, including embroidery, charcoal sketching, and other forms of decorative art. Her efforts grew out of her role as an art instructor in Racine, Wisconsin, operating under the Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project program, and this painting likely came out of this period when art was as much a relief effort as a cultural touchstone. Housed in blue and beige matting and framed in gold. Some soiling to edges of images, minor wear to frames, else fine. (Measures 17 by 12 in. [432x305mm] in a 25 1/2 by 20 1/2-in. [648x521mm] frame).
