   GEORGE WASHINGTON, 1917, PAINTED BY MICHIGAN BARBER CYRUS T. FUERY, EXHIBITED AT ABBY ALDRIDGE ROCKEFELLER FOLK ART MUSEUM IN 1976 WITH DON WALTERS CURATING:


 

Description:
If George Washington were painted by Andy Warhol for artwork that would appear on a Campbell Soup can, he might look a good deal like this fabulous 1917 interpretation by Parma Cyrus T. Fuery, a barber from Parma, Michigan. Dated 1917 (the first year of U.S. involvement in WWI) and signed on the reverse, Fuery's oversized canvas (30 x 40.5 inches) shows the hand of an accomplished folk artist. Though unlisted, his treatment of the angular facial features, serpentine brow, and hair are whimsical, bold, and appealing. Esteemed folk art expert and antiques dealer Don Walters seems to have agreed. While serving as chief curator of the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum in Colonial Williamsburg, he included the painting in a special patriotic exhibit for the 1976 Bicentennial.
