An American folk art piece celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation. The artist, A. A. Lamb, is shrouded in complete obscurity, save for this, his only known painting. Given the subject matter, he is likely to have been a Northerner; possibly from New York, where he might have studied the Henry K. Brown statue that was used as a model for the distant figure of George Washington. The ornate lettering on Liberty’s chariot, rendered in perfect perspective, suggests the hand of a tradesman; perhaps a sign painter or carriage decorator. The completed White House dome, topped by the 19-foot statue of Freedom, dates the piece to around 1864 or later.
