Canvaswork pictures: This category refers to a well known group of needlework pictures or needlepoint pictures, executed in "tent" stitch, predominately made in the mid 18th century in Philadelphia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, the Boston area, and in England. They often depict a shepherd and shepherdess or a hunt scene with a pastoral background. They vary in size from about 4" x 6" to massive and impressive works of art referred to as "over mantles" that can be 2 feet high and 5 feet wide. This type of needlework folk art is some of the most highly prized and aggressively collected antique needlework on the market today.
