American Folk Art Museum


This grouping features highlights from the American Folk Art Museum’s collection in a wide variety of mediums. 

Drawn from the American Folk Art Museum, this grouping presents a survey of highlights from the museum’s collection. Together these artworks can act as an introduction to museum visitors that have never experienced folk art, or as rotations for museums with extensive folk art holdings. This grouping presents a wide array of mediums and themes including Clementine Hunter and Charles C. Hofmann’s landscape paintings that vibrantly capture the essence of place. Other themes explored in this grouping include the representation and popularity of animal forms in folk art from decoy ducks to the fantastical imagery of a sea serpent weathervane.
