Don Carney Pen and Ink Drawing in Vintage Frame - "Playful Pony"

$ 2,200.00



A beautiful pen and ink drawing of a "Playful Pony" by Don Carney. This is framed in a stunning vintage frame from the artist's thoughtfully and lovingly acquired collection. An endearing part of the framing is the paper lining on the back - it's from Don's father's furniture shop that they would use to wrap packages. A fun, sweet detail.

16" by 14", pen and ink on paper, vintage frame

* the beautiful frame is one of a kind and any irregularities or imperfections are part of its charm.

Don Carney has been drawing the natural world since his childhood - it's his biggest source of inspiration. He started to hone his artistic sensibility while studying illustration and painting at the Art Institute of Boston before moving to New York City where he worked as an illustrator for fashion design clients. Shortly after moving to New York, Don met his partner John Ross and together they founded Patch NYC with a small collection of hand-detailed bags, scarves and hats made by John's mom. Bergdorf Goodman ordered this first collection as well as Barney's... and soon their design studio was flourishing with orders from around the world. Today Don collaborates with Astier de Villatte, West Elm, Miriam Haskell, Monoprix France, Antoinette Poisson, Fragonard.... the list goes on! Don's artwork is special to us - we have carried it off and on for the entirety of the 20 years of our shop. We are so happy to offer it again with this special collection.
