Thayer, Abbott Handerson, American Painter, 1849-1921:
Known primarily for his ethereal angel figures, he also painted landscapes and delicate florals. His few surviving still lifes are impressionist in style with diffused light. He had a distinguished career on the East Coast, first in Boston, then upstate New York, and from 1901 in Dublin, New Hampshire.
The tapestry is fully lined with a strong cotton fabric. There is a rod pocket provided on the top.
