This painting is folkart and the artist is unknown. The grandmother of the
woman who owns it bought it at a
farm auction about 1950. The old man who was selling out his farm, told her it was
Black Ethan Allen, a Morgan stallion.
There is one Black Ethan Allen registered in Volume 1 and we cannot be sure if
it is the same horse.
The one in the register was sired by Superb, a son of Ethan Allen 50, and out of Vermont Belle,
a daughter of Nonpareil by Long Island Black Hawk. He was black and foaled in 1869.
The painting has been professionally appraised for $850.00 and the owner is
willing to sell it to the museum for $750.00.
The deadline is September 1st and we are looking for support/contributions from the Morgan community to
help purchase this for the museum.
With the help of several people, we have raised the funds
for this art piece.
We wish to thank those that donated for this unique painting.
