This biography from the Archives of AskART:
John Scholl, a carpenter by profession, did not begin wood carving until he was retired at the age of 80.  He carved a series of folk art wood carvings which he hand painted all based on "celebrations".  Scholl did not sell or give away his carvings rather he chose to display them in his front parlor for friends and family to enjoy.

At his death, the carvings were put in his parlor were they remained until the 1930s when they were put away and stored in his barn.  In the 1960s, the collection, some 40 carvings were sold to Adele Earnest of the Stony Point Folk Gallery.

In 1967 the sculptures were exhibited at the Willard Gallery in Manhattan, the centerpiece of the exhibit was "The Wedding" carving.  The carvings sold to museums and collectors including, The American Folk Art Museum, The Whitney Museum and Fenimore House in Cooperstown, New York.

Northeast Auctions, August 2005, who received the information from Hilary and Paulette Nolan.
