Tramp Art Frame SOLD A646

Here it is, early up-cycling.  Very early. This piece is truly a wonder, dizzying in its detail, almost crystalline in its formation. We also dig what’s in the frame at the moment. Frame measures 14″ x 17″ x 3 1/2″ deep.

Price on request.

Tramp Art was art made in the United States from discarded materials, especially cigar boxes, in the period following the American Civil War through the 1930s. Pieces were carefully constructed by untrained, mainly poor artists from a broad range of nationalities, using meager tools. While it is claimed that most Tramp Art was made by hobos, many of the larger pieces could not have been completed by itinerants due to the time and space that would have been required in order to construct them.
