Jumping the Broom 1853

Welcome to Edmonds Gallery in the month of August. The featured image at this time is "Jumping the Broom". This image represents the institution of Marriage as it has come down to us through the years. In the painting it can be seen that Mary Ann Landrum Grubbs is opening the eyes of Richard Gordon Grubbs with the help of the broom. It can be seen that Richard now finds himself in a new Relationship. The wife exerts her dominance.
The background shows thier locationship as being in the neighborhood of Winchester Kentucky,Clark County in the year of our Lord 1853.
