An archival premium Quality Art Print of a Girl in Red Dress with Cat and Dog by Ammi Phillips for sale by Brandywine General Store. The self taught artist finished this oil on canvas sometime during the period of 1830 to 1835. This painting has been reproduced many times and many ways and remains the favorite folk art painting of many people. The US Postal service has used this image on a stamp and a novelist has even written a book based on this artwork. A New York Times critic once said it is "one of the most beautiful paintings made by any American artist ever". At any rate this ranks among the most well known paintings of the naive style art. The composition shows a young girl in a red dress with very wide shoulders, she is holding a cat in her arms, while at her feet lays the dog. In 1985 an anonymous donor paid 1 million dollars for this painting and then donated it to the American Folk Art Museum. Folk art print #09
