Thus,the vibrant greens, yellows, reds, and blues that adorned the important documents marking milestones in the lives of Germanic communities were also used to enliven furniture with similar motifs and identical colors. A distinctive group offurniture and decorative objects emerged in an area of Germanic settlement around the Schwaben and Mahantango creeks in Pennsylvania. Probably the work ofseveral craftsmen, similar painted motifs evidence a close relationship that may derive from such shared sources as fraktur and gravestones.

Other painted elements are drawn from broader decorative trends of the period,such as neodassical striping, urns, and corner quarter-fans. It is conjectured that one ofthe major contributors to this regional furniture style was Johannes Mayer,whose home was discovered to contain moldings and trims identical to those used on chests such as the Chest ofDrawers. When originally painted,it was probably a blue-green color, as the paint is composed primarily ofPrussian blue with chrome yellow and whiting.

The chest has received six generations ofresin varnish that have probably darkened to the bright green we see today. Spider relied upon conventional motifs associated with Germanic arts in America,but he interpreted such common elements as hearts,flowers, and birds in a highly. Most of his work appears on full-size blanket chests and a few smaller storage chests; it is not known whether he constructed the furniture that bears his decoration. The designs on this chest are executed in five pigments,ground in oil, that Spider used consistently: Prussian blue, white lead, red lead,lampblack,and burnt umber.

These pigments were all commercially available, and some were relatively new at the time. An analysis ofthe paint layers indicates that Spider covered the entire surface ofeach piece offurniture with a thin red ground of burnt umber. Prussian blue mixed with white lead was applied last, brushed around the designs; initials and dates were painted freehand. After the decoration was completed,the entire surface was covered with several coats ofvarnish. Hollander is senior curator and director ofexhibitions at the American Folk Art Museum.

Notes 1 Peter M. Buck, conservator and paint analyst, letter to the author, August 5, Potter, , p. Yet what may be one of the most interesting of such documents has rarely been cited. Many of the events recounted in the text show how Paine overcame the entrenched prejudices she encountered as an itinerant and as a single woman traveling alone. Roses and Thorns provides a remarkable view of the folk portrait painter and of the few women who followed Paine down the itinerant's road. It is likely that Rosesand Thorns has not been extensively referenced because of the difficulties that it presents for the reader.

Because rumors and innuendo had affected her painting commissions and relationships, Paine's autobiography omits any details that might be used to spread gossip. For example, only her parents, grandparents, and brother are named at the beginning of the page book. Not included are the names of her stepfather, who was married to her mother for thirty-nine years, her own husband and son, or many of the people she encountered throughout her lifetime. Although the autobiography is presented chronologically, the only date in Roses and Thorns is that of its completion.

For these reasons, it has been necessary for us to fully research Paine's life,. Tall for her age and manewspaper advertisements. Through this process we found ture in appearance, Paine was employed at age 15 to teach the dates, names, and locations for many of the events she at the local school. Neither cold, heat, or even storms prevent her. She certainly is a very eccentric person She seems to be a bird of passage.

She dropped here among us one day, but who she is, to whom related, or wherefrom,still remains a mystery to many. It was a comfortable life on a small farm. Her grandfather, who had "no regular salary, because his feeble health would not admit of his preaching constantly," died on August 7, Paine was an excellent student, "a favorite with the teachers, an object of envy and jealousy with the scholars," but she left school at age 11 to help care for her grandmother.

When she was 12, she was struck by a bolt of lightning that killed the woman standing next to her. According to the attending physician, she nearly died herself. I seemed to be going forward towards a large group of very young women. They had on white dresses, and looked most beautifully.

The combined of education Paine Paine returned to her mother's home in Foster and opened a school a few miles away. For several years, she taught school during the summer and spent the winter sewing garments and embroidering. Paine continued to give her mother all of her earnings. Around this time a son named Nathaniel was born to her mother and stepfather. How could that tender mother so sacrifice her only daughter, and thus abuse the influence and control she held over her? Oh, how could she! I was led to the altar—of sacrifice!

With mother implored her to accept, however, and she finally this trip to Portland, she began her life as an itinerant agreed. On November 4, , when Paine was 27 years portrait painter. Paine described her wedHer mother wrote disapprovingly of her "clandestine ding with deep regret:"The evening was sad and dull An incident on the return trip by boat from Providence demonstrates Paine's independent character.

She realized during the passage that she was fifty cents short. She had befriended a mother and son aboard the boat but was too embarrassed to request help. The idea was preposterous! I threw myself into my berth—with the cold sweat standing in large drops, on my face. I saw the colored cabin maid, looking with admiring eyes, at my traveling basket.

Would I sell it to her? It cost me one dollar; but, as I have used it a few times—you may have it for seventy-five cents. I was enabled Many declared they never saw so happy a temperament as mine. Moving to a new boardinghouse, she had a friend publish in the local newspaper the story of her divorce using the fictitious name "Jessey," along with testimonials. Many came forward with professions of sympathy and friendship.

But with me—the wound left a scar, that never healed. After my recovery. Religion was important in Paine's life, and she was particularly proud of her ability to quote large sections of the Bible to support her assertions. Yet she struggled with her religious conviction. I was astray from the Fold of God. She again returned to Portland and was soon painting. She spent several weeks with a family living near the New Hampshire border. But my health was gradually sinking. Taken in June. Around , at age 40, Paine moved to Boston. She had "the opportunity of studying my profession, at the [Boston] Athenaeum This was very advantageous to me.

The scenery was delightful. Paine was left alone in the apartment she had set up for her mother and stepfather, and her "feelings were much hurt. Courier and six moral and religious poems in the following two years. I introduced her as my adopted daughter. On a visit to her parents' new farm, Paine was shocked when she found them "living in a sort of out-house" while her half brother Nathaniel was living in the main house with the deed to the farm in his name.

Paine always traveled by moving between boardinghouses, arriving with several letters of introduction, so that each move was based on a recommendation ofsomeone she trusted. Her visit to Worcester, Massachusetts, at age 47, around , exemplifies the problems of a woman traveling alone. She makes a clear distinction between a hotel or public house and a boardinghouse, where a lady would lodge.

This incident is the only example of Paine staying at a hotel recorded in her autobiography:"[I] proceeded alone, an entire stranger, with two introductory letters, to W[orcester], Mass. The darkness of night came on early, every female, one after another, had got out of the coach At length, about 8 o'clock in the evening, we arrived at our destination. The rain was still pouring like a flood She asked the maid to show her the outside of each door and found the adjacent rooms to be vacant.

When alone, I inserted each key on the inside, partly turned,to prevent the possible use of duplicate keys. She remained there for the winter. In the spring, Paine found that her half brother Nathaniel had sold her parents' farm and moved them back to South Killingly, Connecticut, where he operated a tavern. There she "found the poor old people looking sad and dejected," so she again moved them into an apartment.

Paine asks,"Reader, do you now comprehend the cause of my being poor? I have never received pecuniary aid from any mortal, since I was sixteen years of age. Not a solitary instance—as the reader knows. I knew not where to rest the sole of my foot I answer—that money was made to use, not to hoard. That the best time to do without what we need, is when we cannot get it. She set up her painting room and put out a sign, but her landlady closed the boardinghouse with just three days' notice. I saw no way to meet; this made me perfectly miserable by day—and haunted my dreams by night.

Paine greatly resented being taken advantage of, but she had to accept these terms. On November 2, , Paine's stepfather died in Killingly, Connecticut, and her widowed mother came to live with her in Providence. Paine also moved to Hartford, to be near her mother. She moved into a stylish boardinghouse but did little business. When the time came to return to Providence with her mother, Paine set out first to arrange accommodations. Expecting her mother's arrival, she instead "received a Telegraphic notice—to set out immediately for H[artford], that mother was at the point of death!

Since her teens, she had continuously supported her mother and stepfather. Paine found that painting relieved her grief, and six months after her mother's death she decided to go on a journey. First she traveled to Portland and took room and board with a small family. An extremely cold winter meant few portrait commissions and increased heating expenses. Another family invited her to spend the winter with them as their guest, but her pride and independent spirit did not allow her to accept the offer.

And perhaps become a guest without welcome, and a servant without pay? Shortly after this, my business increased, and I soon found my way out, without the assistance of any hand. Noyce, Corbett Susan Paine Jan 3rd and Mrs. Corbett by Susan Paine Jan 3rd Business was slow through the summer, but each day she went to her painting room. Her proud determination to be an unattached itinerant repeatedly caused her to dismiss any opportunity that might have anchored her to a specific location, or to particular people.

Only toward the end of her life did Paine ultimately settle in Providence. In the final pages of Roses and Thorns, Paine comments on the lack of respect given to the elderly, the genteel "parlor ladies" who look down on women who work, children who are "bound servants," and cruelty to animals. The autobiography concludes,"I hope to rest my weary heart where sorrow never comes, and joys are never ending And there,I hope to find perfect truth; pure, unchanging love; boundless confidence and unalloyed happiness.

An appendix features eight pages of moral poetry It is also interesting to note what Paine did not describe in Roses and Thorns. Although she advertised that she painted miniature portraits, they are never discussed in her autobiography. She barely mentions the depression of , probably the most severe economic downturn in the history ofthe United States; the monetary crisis usually looms large in autobiographies of this era. The introduction of the daguerreotype in the early s represented the end of many folk portrait painters' careers, and must have greatly affected Paine's business as well, but the effect of this competition is never mentioned.

She was always determined to continue painting, and the last dated portrait that we have located is from ,only three years before her death. In Paine continued her literary career by publishing Wait and See, a rambling Victorian novel filled with sinister villainy, moral questions, and deathbed stories. Slowly, business improved. She She describes her discouragements: "[T]o toil through writes in Roses and Thorns that she first started creating summer's heat and winter's cold Her paying my expenses..

It might have been otherwise, if first known work is a portrait of George Morillo Bartol all my employers had been honest enough, after ordering see page 64 , a signed pastel dated Signed portraits and obtaining, an expensive picture, to pay for it. Each portrait presents a solid and mother, and there was no one to turn to in difficult times. Subjects'faces are overly modeled and tend to be too round, and the flesh tones are exaggerated toward white. Hands are usually too long and not very convincing.

Linear perspective was difficult for Paine. The direction of her sitters' hands is often jarringly inconsistent with the rest of their bodies. The placement of tables and other objects is often quite awkward. The sitters' clothing, hair, and jewelry are usually painted with elaborate details. Sometimes the interests of the sitter are proudly displayed, such as the sewing implements seen with Mrs. Corbett see page 69 or the schoolbook in George Bartol's portrait.

The vast majority of Paine's signed oil portraits were painted on wood panels and are rarely on canvas. This is surprising, as she was working in urban locations where artists' canvas was readily available. She apparently preferred the wood panels and continued to paint on them throughout her life. These wood panels help make her paintings recognizable today.

They are unusually thick one half-inch , and their back and sides often have a distinct green-blue, gray-green, or red wash. Her standard thirtyby-twenty-five-inch portrait was usually painted on one large piece of wood but was occasionally composed of two pieces with a spline joint. These panels were well prepared, and today only a few show the expected cracks or bowed surface that come with age.

In small, precise handwriting, Paine often recorded the name of the sitter, the date, and her own name on the back of the portrait. Interestingly, the George Bartol pastel is signed "Mrs. Paine," probably a reflection ofthe discomfort she felt of being a single woman. Portraits have been found on which she signed her first name as "Susan,""Susanna," or simply "S.

As we have been unable to find a record of her father owning property, we cannot locate the family home. So it is not possible to determine which city would today be considered her birthplace. Paine's autobiography provides new information: that a poor student could pay her board by selling needlework produced during evenings and weekends. This low price would have given her a competitive advantage but may have also been the basis of her precarious finances. Newspaper advertisements offering art instruction are probably referring to this academy and not to Susanna Paine.

This situation fermented until those who wanted to change the state's electoral system held a separate political convention and drafted a new state constitution to address this grievance.

Both the opposition and the previously elected state legislature held their own elections, with the opposition group claiming Thomas W. Dorr to have been elected as governor. The state was divided between these groups, which began to amass arms,while President Tyler refused to intervene.

The postcards reproduced in this essay represent a narrow glimpse into these vernacular photographs that have been mostly forgotten in attics or have gone missing in the dustbins of everyday life. They were all acquired by Harvey Tulcensky, an artist with an artist's eye,and have been recently published in the book Real Photo Postcards: Unbelievable Imagesfrom the Collection ofHarvey Tulcensky. Postcards All postcards collection of Harvey Tulcensky. Photography courtesy Princeton Architectural Press. While Tulcensky organizes the cards in his beautifully printed book thematically, under such categories as "parading," "at work," and "romance," this conventional ordering system goes against the grain of what I find most compelling about real photo postcards: namely their timebound specificity and their pointedly irregular or heterogenous character.

Unlike our engagement with all-toofamiliar official histories of photography, characteristically organized by author, theme, or chronology, my recommendation is to unpack real photo postcards, instead, like a disorganized box of personal photographs and to marvel at their unique properties and vernacular inflections. Passing thoughts on passing things, real photo postcards are inspired fingers pointing beyond the frame toward the furtive pleasures, idiosyncratic poignancies, and piercing wonders of the real world and, self-reflexively, of course, to the singular wonders of the real photo postcards themselves.

This admittedly poetic approach, however, does not aim to cast our gaze up toward the ether of universal constellations of art but rather zeroes in on the here and now. Intended to be sent through the mail for a particular and familiar audience, real photo postcards are time-bound registrations of particular things, events, people, or places. Sharing little in common with the pretensions of timeless art, these messages have a workmanlike quality, bearing the. Sometimes produced by great photographers,the discrete charm ofreal photo postcards for me, however, derives instead from inspired, idiosyncratic visions, methods, and purposes rather than from professional values.

This local, particular, and contingent emphasis is elaborated on the postcard's verso, where handwritten captions and messages could also be added, thereby inscribing a personal relationship between sender frequently the photographer and original recipient. So what is a real photo postcard? Ebooks and Manuals

Real photo postcards began to proliferate dramatically in , however, the year that the U. Postal Service allowed personali7ed messages to be written on a postcard's preprinted back, with space allotted for a message on the left and the address on the right.

Photographic images now could be printed directly onto sturdy postcard stock. The larger negatives and the photographic printing process gave the real photo postcards greater clarity relative to the vast majority of postcard images, which were printed on a lithographic press and composed of small dot patterns.

Previously elusive or ephemeral images—a giant trout,an arrested eclipse, a neighbor sledding, a local fire—could now be captured, and thereby witnessed, by virtually anyone.

Knowingly or not, amateurs would adopt the visual rhetoric of professional photography or even professional painting and, what is more,they also sometimes played with photographic fictions.

Even though exaggeration cards were distributed as more commercial "souvenir cards," these commemorative oddments still manage to communicate with unofficial, local, and quirky dialects.

Snapshots were intended, for the most part, as private commemorations, but real photo postcards supported other purposes: to engage brief communication over long distances, especially significant in the pre-telephone era. Modest, idiosyncratic, and above all unique—even when they were widely reproduced—real photo postcards retain a special access to particular, timebound messages, especially when the sender was also the photographer; the postmark on the address side of the card, however, does not cancel their uncanny power to deliver their arresting registrations of the here and now to the present viewer, one more time, with feeling.

These are not impersonal, timeless, official views but rather idiosyncratic messages with passing impressions of passing things that pierce us with their particularity—what Roland Barthes described as a photograph's punctum, "this wound, this prick, this mark made by a pointed instrument.

The Fellow Actor takes the bottle of talcum powder from the table and approaches the Actor on the bed.

The Fellow Actor picks up the heart and walks over to the table; he rinses the heart with lightning fluid; wraps it in bandages and places it in the metal bowl.
