ORIGINAL'SETTER WITH WOODCOCK' HUNTING DOG PORTRAIT OIL PAINTING. This is really a wonderful original.
When I first saw this painting, I actually thought it was a print after an Alexander Pope Jr painting. When I picked it up, I realized in fact that it was a real painting and not a print. The quality was that of an Alexander Pope, and I thought there was no doubt that I was going to find his signature below the frame edge. I took it out of the frame and there was nothing. No signature that I could find.
I wish I could say that it is an Alexander Pope painting but all I can say comfortably is that it is the school of that great sporting dog artist. Fresh from a Massachusetts estate this is a great painting of what I believe is an Irish Setter with a woodcock in his mouth.
Oil on academy board measuring 18 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. Painting is in excellent condition. There is an obvious layer of minor surface grime that could easily be cleaned off. A few very small and minor scuffs but nothing too bad at all. Really just a beautiful original period hunting dog painting.
Original thick wood frame with distressed gold is the perfect compliment. Verso of painting has remnants of original Academy Board label but no other indications of who the artist was.
Truly an outstanding example of this type of Sporting Art. Frame measures 25 3/4 x 21 3/4 inches. CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS EXCELLENT PIECE!!! If you have any questions regarding the work, please dont hesitate to ask.
