Artist Biography: "Known for his decorative work, especially of anthropomorphic animals, Frederick Stuart Church was a native of Michigan who had a long career in New York City. He had in-depth knowledge of animal anatomy, which was evident in the depictions of this subject in oil, watercolor, and etchings. His first allegorical compositions were produced in the mid-1870s. Although he was a strong believer in academic training, Church did not visit Europe until late in life and felt that foreign art had little to teach Americans. He was directed by his parents toward a business career, and worked from the age thirteen to seventeen for the American Express Company in Chicago. He did a lot of drawing in his spare time. For three years, he served in Union artillery during the Civil War, and then returned to Chicago where he studied at the Chicago Art Academy with Walter Shirlaw. In 1870, he moved to New York and studied at the National Academy of Design with Lemuel Wilmarth and at the Art Students League. Early on, he earned his living as a commercial artist including illustrations for "Harper's Weekly." His illustrations often featured black and white drawings of animals. He also worked in watercolors and oils and was skilled as an etcher. He was a member of the National Academy of Design."

In overall fair to good condition, with faint hairline craquelure running vertically throughout the canvas. We notice some craquelure webs at times as well, for example at upper right corner. With light flaking on the main bear's face. The canvas would benefit from a light cleaning, judging from the yellowish smears in some parts of the canvas (from the old varnish, most likely). Examination under UV light does not reveal any sign of inpainting. With a small flake at center right (on one of the bears), slight abrasions along the outer edges, including the top outer edge, where we notice three pinpoint holes at upper right.

Housed in a Louis XIV style giltwood frame with pierced corners and centers. Sight: 15 3/4" H x 42 3/4" W. Framed: 30 1/4" H x 57" W x 4" D. Provenance: the estate of Edith (Edie) M. Bass, Nashville, Tennessee, by descent from her parents, Walter Paul McBride and Claire Childs of Lake Forest, Illinois. Note: Claire Childs, was the daughter of C. Frederick Childs (1875-1955), founder of the C.F. Childs & Co. Securities Co. Mr. Childs was the first dealer of U.S. Government Securities. His offices in Chicago and New York were across the street from the Federal Reserve in each city and his trading office was located at One Wall Street. Biography: "Known for his decorative work, especially of anthropomorphic animals, Frederick Stuart Church was a native of Michigan who had a long career in New York City. He had in-depth knowledge of animal anatomy, which was evident in the depictions of this subject in oil, watercolor, and etchings. His first allegorical compositions were produced in the mid-1870s. Although he was a strong believer in academic training, Church did not visit Europe until late in life and felt that foreign art had little to teach Americans. He was directed by his parents toward a business career, and worked from the age thirteen to seventeen for the American Express Company in Chicago. He did a lot of drawing in his spare time. For three years, he served in Union artillery during the Civil War, and then returned to Chicago where he studied at the Chicago Art Academy with Walter Shirlaw. In 1870, he moved to New York and studied at the National Academy of Design with Lemuel Wilmarth and at the Art Students League. Early on, he earned his living as a commercial artist including illustrations for "Harper's Weekly." His illustrations often featured black and white drawings of animals. He also worked in watercolors and oils and was skilled as an etcher. He was a member of the National Academy of Design."
