Maud Lewis
Covered Bridge

About

Three horse drawn sleighs pass through a red-orange covered bridge towards a village of brightly colored houses and church in this delightful winter scene. This painting is signed and framed without glass. Referred to as folk art, Maud Lewis’s paintings are irrepressibly joyful and depict her surroundings with humor and affection. Created in bright, solid colors with a flattened picture plane and limited use of perspective, Lewis's paintings charm viewers with such subjects as winter landscapes with sleighs, deer in forest, oxen and her cats both wide eyed and frowning. Towards the end of her life, Lewis gained celebrity thanks to a 1965 CBC documentary and a feature in the Toronto Star newspaper. Most recently, a feature film based on her life, "Maudie," was released in 2016. Starring Ethan Hawke and Sally Hawkins, the film captures the essence of Lewis's constrained life and the paintings that allowed her imagination to escape its confines.
