Description: This is an oil painting titled The Little Harem pheasants by Mr. Hunt. It most assuredly was done for the giant sporting goods store of the time, Abercrombie and Fitch, as there is a tag adhered to the back of the canvas on the painting. See photos. Dated 1955 it is a superb painting for Mr. Hunts later years. Thick with oil there are 4 birds, one Rooster and 3 hens. Framed it is 19" wide by 17" tall. Artwork is 13 1/2" Wide by 12" Tall. Overall a very minty piece that is aesthetically pleasing by one of the Master sporting art illustrators of the late 19th and 20th century. Mr. Hunts works are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, here is a chance at a piece with good provenance (painted for Abercrombie and Fitch's sporting goods store) see all photos, see abercrombie and Fitch tag on verso of painting.
