Oil on canvas, 12 x 9 inches, 1908, signed in the lower left corner, signed and dated on the back of the canvas, in an ornate period gilt frame. George Arthur Hays was born in Greenville, NH, but lived for most of his adult life in Providence, Rhode Island. Although Hays had very little formal training, he was a successful artist known for his Barbizon inspired landscapes, many with cows or sheep.
