Oil on canvas, 8 x 10 inches, 1908, signed lower left, 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.

Print

Quebec
1846-1938, American

This is a very fine etching by Stephen Parrish after a painting by Henry Ward Ranger. The image size is 18 x 23 3/4 inches, published by Klackner in 1887, cat: Schneider-124, with a remarque in the lower center margin, pencil signed by both Parrish and Ranger. In her description of this etching, Schneider writes that "there is a good match between the sensibilities of the painter, Henry Ward Ranger (1858-1916), and the printmaker, Parrish, so the result is a masterful etching."
