State Seal of Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania
Oil on canvas
Circa 1840
Beneath the state seal of Pennsylvania in this appealing painting is a narrative highlighting the progress of the state, showing a broken down stagecoach and covered wagon, symbols of outdated modes of travel, presumably westward. Speeding above is steam engine carrying goods and passengers on the journey west, celebrating the enterprising spirit of the age.

 

Why we love it: A folky rendition of the state seal that celebrates the progress of the state.
