Additional Information

Jeanne O’Neil of East Grand Forks, Minnesota, began her artistic career in the 1970s painting murals in her native state, Iowa, but later turned to printmaking and illustrating children’s books. In addition, she and her husband, Tom O’Neil, have established reputations as performers of traditional and southern old-time music.

O’Neil’s print may be described as a “portrait” of a place. Stylistically, it is a highly descriptive and factual (rather than emotionally expressive) rendering of a farm in Iowa that her husband’s grandfather founded. When the print was made, however, the farm was no longer owed by the O’Neil family.
