Farmall Tractor Watercolor, July 2014
The original design for this Farmall Red Tractor one is a Photograph by HumboldtStreet on Etsy. I was asked to create this piece for a friend and I hope I did not disappoint – I wish I still had it as I love it so much! Ink and watercolor on watercolor paper.
A little history about Case & the Farmall Red Tractor
In 1842, Jerome Increase Case founds the Racine Threshing Machine Works in Racine, Wisconsin. He innovates the current thresher and separated the straw from the grain.
In 1923, Bert Benjamin builds first of the legendary Farmall, a unified system of tractors and implements for plowing, cultivation and harvesting, featuring a revolutionary light design.
In 1939, the International Harvester introduces the second generation Farmall – the Letter Series – on August 9, 1939. The series included A and B (small-sized), H (middle-sized), and M (large-sized) tractors.
In 1943, the International Harvester creates first successful spindle cotton picker. “Old Red” was mounted on a Farmall Tractor H. Both are donated for display at the Smithsonian Institution
