Theodore Degroot, (1926 - 1984), a Dutch artist, popularized a new art form: Lath Art, a design made out of wood, with the artist using 1/4 inch thick real wood slats (cedar) and other found pieces that brings out an authentic country look and feel to the work.
These assembled designs were later produced in the 1970's by Austin Productions with different artists contributing.
Lath art is a form of wood working folk art, for making rustic pictures out of strips of old lath, from plaster and lath walls...it is commonly made from lattice, lumber stickers and other weathered pieces.
It's simpler counterpart would be the Paint By Numbers art form which came about a generation earlier.
Theodore Degroot is considered a premier artist in this style & his work is very collectible.
Here is a charming country piece of some arranged daffodils in a basket along side a wooden goose.
