Folk Art shepherd & shepherdess courting scene from Huber
Shepherd and Shepherdess
Folk Art courting scene
New England, early 19th century

This charming watercolor courting scene depicts a couple in a bucolic setting with sheep in the foreground and in the background, on the far side of the river, stands a large center chimney house. The “shepherd” is placing a wreath of flowers on the head of a beautifully dressed young lady “shepherdess”. It was a delightful pastime for well to do young courting couples to dress up and venture into the countryside under the pretext of tending sheep.

Watercolor on paper; 17 ½” x 20” sight.
