Patriotic Art, Importance of New and Historic Americana Posted on 21 Jan 14:51
As the next Presidential term begins, we have to unique opportunity to celebrate a transition that is in many ways uniquely American. Being a longstanding part of the Washington DC community, we always love these weekends when they come around and they give us a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a truly patriotic event.
In light of this years celebrations, we thought about some of the fantastic patriotic art that we currently have in our store at the moment and the stories behind those pieces.
Nothing feels quite as patriotic as a big American flag and there's nothing we like more than this amazing pop art canvas by Fabiano Amin. A naturalized American, Fabiano has been inspired by patriotism in many of his pieces and has a large range of stars and stripes based pieces with a whole lot of red white and blue!
This antique flag has been converted into a beautiful and modern piece of art by none other than Laura Roosevelt (yes from that family of Roosevelt's!) We love how the flag and background really fuse together to create a fantastic and unique piece.
As we role into an inauguration, we find it fitting to remember the very first and this antique flag commissioned to celebrate the 200 year anniversary of the birth of George Washington is the perfect piece to do just that. A true piece of history to commemorate the man who did so much to found our great nation.
