This exceptionally well-painted oil on canvas measures 27 x 23 in its original lemon gold picture frame; 22 x 18 actual and is signed upper left H M Wegner Pinx 1904. Wegner studied art with his father, Augustus Wegner. According to the William and Mary Quarterly dated April 1930 p. Wegner painted over 25 portraits hanging in Public Institutions in the State of Virginia.Known for portraits and genre works with an agrarian flavor, this work represents some of his finer work on a smaller format. The work is freshly rescued from the attic of a multi-generation estate and shows considerable surface grime and scattered small losses on a stable surface. It depicts a genteel well-groomed lady in nice togs feeding her black horse from a bucket while pigeons and chickens gather around. The details are especially enchanting from the finely rendered feathers to the details on her high button shoes and the stick in the hasp on the stable door.
This will be a masterpiece when properly restored. Its frame is very dirty with gesso losses on the outer edge and original surface.
