Antique Hex Type Crayon Star by Pennsylvania Folk Artist Wayne B. Blouch (#5)

Regular price $25.00

Another hex type star from a portfolio of antique drawings by Pennsylvania folk/outsider artist Wayne B. Blouch of Lancaster, PA--I had four of these previously, all wonderfully distinct, and just got two more in. These were owned by art professor & art historian Jill McKeever Furst, who taught at Moore College of Art & Design in Philadelphia, PA for over 10 years, which may be when she acquired them. There is not much out there about Blouch except a few sales of work at auction (Garth's; Pook & Pook). This drawing dates to the very early 20th c. I believe.

Executed in crayon and pencil on lined paper, the drawing resembles a hex sign, a form of Pennsylvania Dutch folk art related to fraktur.  This one is the larger of the two just in: 9 1/8" x 8". Very good condition, with the color nice and bright.
