About Theorems
As with any theorem it is a stencil art form painted in oil on a cotton velveteen fabric.
Theorems are true American Folk Art and were often created by young ladies as part of their finishing school studys. Most of the old theorems were not signed or dated but could be traced by the pattern created by a New England school.  

Early American Life
