Grapevine Painting Reproduction
The "Grape Vine" is an adaptation of an antique theorem. 
When on display this theorem painting can be found at the Dewitt Wallace Gallery in the Abby Aldrich Folk Art Museum which is in Colonial Williamsburg. This theorem is different than most of the older historic designs because it does not have any kind of an container.

About Theorems
As with any theorem it is a stencil art form painted in oil on a cotton velveteen fabric.
Theorems are true American Folk Art and were often created by young ladies as part of their finishing school studys. Most of the old theorems were not signed or dated but could be traced by the pattern created by a New England school.
