Three-Panel Folding Screen, Painting of Mount Vernon, circa 1935

About

The screen was probably painted in the Washington, DC area. It is a depiction of Mount Vernon, George and Martha Washington's Virginia plantation home, prior to the removal of the decorative balustrade on the porch roof. Oil on board with trompe l'oeil wainscoting at the bottom and brass nailhead trim on the outer edges. The back is faux painted to resemble wood grain. The patina makes this unusual piece of Americana gorgeous.
