Original folk art painting -- Abraham Lincoln, Vampire President, John Henry Redler
1 Original folk art painting -- Abraham Lincoln, Vampire President John Henry Redler
Good. 
Artwork. A painting by folk artist John Henry Redler, depicting President Abraham Lincoln. The painting is on paper and measures circa 26 x 20 inches. (PLEASE NOTE: Glass and frame shown in photo are NOT included. This painting on paper will be ROLLED and sent in a mailing tube.) The medium is unknown but is probably acrylic housepaint. The painting is signed 'John Henry Redler' on the bottom right; the title 'VAMPIRE LINCOLN' is painted on the bottom left. The exact date is unknown, but I place it at around 1990.

The painting is in Good condition: there is noticeable wear to the edges of the paper, which is probably much older than the painting is dated. There is some age-spotting on the surface.

Mr. Redler, who you can imagine had an offbeat sense of humor, told us that you never saw any pictures of Lincoln smiling, and that was probably because he had bad teeth. So Mr. Redler decided to paint the teeth in all their yellowed, rotting glory. I guess he called this piece 'Vampire Lincoln' because the teeth are rather frightening when combined with the subject's pallor and solemn, long face.

Mr. Redler was a neighbor of ours in Brooklyn, New York. When Mr. Redler retired around 1989, he decide to clean out his garage. Something inspired him to use the leftover materials found in the garage to begin painting, although he had no artistic training. He used whatever old housepaints, housepainting brushes, and fake wood paneling he had to fashion his original creations. He used an old barbecue grill as his easel. He rode his bike around the neighborhood and sometimes found art materials thrown out on garbage pickup nights. We encouraged him to paint and we acquired these pieces. He was considering doing a whole series of American Presidents and doing various world leaders and historical figures, but sadly, he died a few years later.

Original folk art painting of President Ronald Reagan, John Henry Redler
2 Original folk art painting of President Ronald Reagan John Henry Redler
Acceptable. 
Artwork. A painting of President Ronald Reagan by folk artist John Henry Redler. Done on household pressed composite imitation wood paneling, unframed, circa 23 x 28 inches. Medium is unknown but is probably acrylic housepaint. Signed 'John Henry Redler 9-22' on bottom right; the year '90' was cut off when corner was damaged.

The painting is in Fair condition: there is a large chip off the board on top right corner (possibly predating the painting); the bottom right corner is damaged (definitely after the painting was done). There is some age-spotting on the surface.

This painting captures the friendly, photogenic, optimistic demeanor of 'The Great Communicator.'

Original folk art painting of Richard Nixon, John Henry Redler
3 Original folk art painting of Richard Nixon John Henry Redler
Good. 
Artwork. A painting of President Richard Nixon as a prison inmate by folk artist John Henry Redler. The painting is on stretched canvas, unframed, and measures 18 x 24 inches. The medium is unknown but is probably acrylic housepaint. It is signed 'John Henry Redler 1-16-91' on the bottom right. Photo mistakenly cuts off the words 'I'M NOT A CROOK' painted in red on Nixon's uniform. His prisoner number is 1600, as in the White House address on Pennsylvania Avenue. There is a separate unfinished painting by Mr. Redler of a woman with flowers on the back of the canvas which is also quite nice.

The painting is in Good condition: there is noticeable wear to the edges of the canvas, which is probably much older than the painting is dated. There is some age-spotting on the surface.

Original folk art painting--Christian Mystic painted over Rembrandt reproduction, John Henry Redler
4 Original folk art painting--Christian Mystic painted over Rembrandt reproduction John Henry Redler
Good. 
Artwork. A painting by folk artist John Henry Redler, depicting an imaginary old man, Christian mystic, or holy hermit. The painting is on heavy chipboard, unframed, and measures circa 28 x 23 inches. The medium is unknown but is probably acrylic housepaint. It is signed 'John Henry Redler' on the bottom right. The exact date is unknown, but I place it as around 1989.

Originally printed on the chipboard was a reproduction of one of Rembrandt's great self-portraits. That image is now largely obscured by Mr. Redler's painting, except for the face. Mr. Redler's use of this appropriated popular image creates an odd, striking contrast between Rembrandt's richly modelled flesh tones and the later artist's flat areas of color.

The painting is in Good condition: there is noticeable chipping to the edges of the board, which is probably much older than the painting is dated. There is some age-spotting on the surface.
