Shelden Peck (1797-1868)



Shelden Peck was a self-taught artist born in Cornwall, Vermont.  He never signed his paintings.  

I love the disproportionate bodies...the size of the heads and the small feet.  I also love the rigidity of the poises.  An innocent flatness or stiffness of the figure, the flat horizon lines all of his work has a unique personal style that I like a lot.  My work has been and always will be under the influence of other artist's works.
