note:
According to the catalogue raisonné, the Brandywine Museum currently owns a proof of this image, which was formerly in the artist''s studio and is printed on tissue and inscribed in pencil below: ''(illegible) Chadwick SC.'' In the proof, the engraver''s hand is discernible in all light areas, notably on the chicken, the window panes, the door, and the door jamb.
The present painting represents a quintessential N.C. Wyeth work, illustrating a scene of both sadness and romance in a charming, rural setting. It was used to illustrate a prize winning short story entitled "The Prairie" by Clarice Vallette McCauley, which was published in the February 1912 issue of The Delineator magazine. The tale recounts an episode in the life of a couple living on the harsh prairie, who lose their baby to the elements and struggle to triumph over the hardships of the land.

Condition Report: The unlined canvas in excellent original condition; the stretchers do not appear to be original.
Frame: 41 3/4 x 33 x 1 3/4 in.
