Old Glory has been interpreted by artisans of many genres, but this folk-art style painting on a barn door is one of our favorites. Since its debut in the February catalogue and with thanks to a lead supplied by an alert collector, the unknown artist of "American Classic" has been located! Not lost but found, his name is Thomas Langan.

This limited edition canvas flag is designed to be hung unframed just like the original. The "gallery wrapped" canvas wraps around 1 1/2" thick stretcher bars to add the three dimensional look. Wrought-iron rings are included to further replicate the artisanship and rough-hewn look of this original work of Americana.

Thomas Langan
Thomas Langan was born in 1942. He is a self-taught artist; his first carvings were decoys, known as gunning birds and his style was influenced by the functional design of early American decoys.
Tom began carving full time at age 35 when his subjects grew to include domestic, farm and forest animals; trade signs; whirligigs, salt water fish and weathervanes. Most pieces are life size or larger.
Tom's Whistling Swan is in the permanent collection of the Museum of American Folk Art in Manhattan. His work has gone on world tour including exhibition at the Smithsonian Institute and at American embassies in Moscow and Bolivia.
