The Heart and Hand artist worked primarily in Maine and New Hampshire in the 1840s and 1850s. Although the artist's identity is not currently known, the works are easily recognized by the colorful heart and hand motifs that punctuate most the artist's works. In lieu of the heart and hand motif, the artist also used the polychrome design featured on this piece as well as on other documented pieces. (See americaninsights.org/essays/heart-and-hand.) This piece memorializes the deaths of two brothers, Harrison Perkins and Zenas Perkins of Hebron, Maine. Additional genealogical information is available. This piece is in excellent condition and conservation framed. Dimensions: sight 6.25" x 7"; frame 7.75" x 8.5"
