Parrot in Tree
Canvaswork Picture

Needlework pictures featuring a central tree and a prominent bird were popular in the mid eighteenth century, most seem to be from the Boston area or Philadelphia. This example is unusually graphic with the openness of the tree canopy creating a beautiful backdrop for the dominate and lavishly stitched colorful parrot.
