Thomas Nast House

Thomas Nast House, oil on linen, 11x14 in.

Thomas Nast was a German-born American caricaturist and editorial cartoonist who is considered to be the “Father of the American Cartoon. He lived in this home on MacCulloch Avenue in Morristown, NJ.  Nast’s depiction of iconic characters, such as Santa Claus and Uncle Sam, are widely credited with giving us the recognized versions we see today.

This is one of 2 paintings in my Morristown series that will be printed as limited edition giclees available exclusively through Gallery MacEgan. I will print only 10 copies of each painting, each print will be signed and numbered. More details to come, along with info on how to reserve your copy in advance of the opening reception on March 5.
