HOWARD FINSTER - HAND CUT AND PAINTED WOOD

HOWARD FINSTER (1916-2001) was a folk artist who didn't start painting until 1976. He quickly gained national recognition for his art due to his established evangelical background. Among his many commissions were album covers for R.E.M. and the Talking Heads. Click here to learn more about this artist.

This is a hand cut piece of 1/4" plywood in the shape of a dinosaur entitled "Leapin' Lizard" that has been painted with gospel doctrine. It is dated Feb. 9, 1995 and measures approximately 18.5" x 9". The carved piece has been tacked to a 1/2" block of wood which acts as a base and measures approximately 9" x 3.5". There is a wood grain crack in the middle of the tail but, otherwise, it is in excellent condition.
