Sunbonnet Sue Painting by M. Fielder

This is a lovely work of art but I was not able to find any information on the artist M. Fielder. This artist was more than likely a hobby painter thus my inability to find any previous public sale values or biographical information on the artist.

It is a very pretty piece with the Sunbonnet Sue, she looks to be made of plaster or clay and appears to be set apart from the painted surface, hanging her clothes on a line but you also have the quilted appearance to the overall painting.

The resale value in a private sale, antique shop or other non-auction venue would be $50-75 USD and is based on decorative appeal.

It is difficult to date the piece but this type of work was very popular in the 1970s. My mom was a hobby artist and we have several of her works that have a sculpted element in them.

Thank you for your question inquiring about this most unique work of mixed media art and using Michelle for your online art appraisal.
