Oil on canvas to Thomas Chambers (1808-1869), an American folk art painter born in England. The authorship of his often flamboyant and expressive paintings was not really know until the early 1940s when paintings of his distinctive style were found with signatures and dates. Now well recognized, his work is a part of many American folk art collections.
