Barbara has a obtained a license from The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to reproduce four Maud Lewis paintings in textile form: traditional rug hooking, punch needle hooking, and embroidery. All works by Maud Lewis are copywritten and the authority to reproduce them rests with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
Maud Lewis (1903-1970) is one of Canada’s most outstanding folk artists. Her whimsical and universally appealing scenes of her life in rural Nova Scotia are alive with colour, movement and intimacy, evoking memories of our happy childhoods.
The four designs offered by Barbara Lukas are: Full Mailbox ; Winter Visit; Covered Bridge With Sleigh ; Full Mailbox ; and Winter Hauling. They are pictured in their respective order in the pictures on the left.
