"Winter" Needlework Picture

Hannah Robinson American

Not on view

Completed in February of 1819, this striking Pennsylvania needlework picture is unique among Federal samplers in its spare and poignant depiction of a winter landscape. The simple composition suggests that the maker drew her own design, perhaps even her own house, rather than copying it from a published engraving or drawing book.
