Tender and delicate, this antique watercolor painting of duck hunting nearing a pond is a true example of naive folk art from the early 1900s. Its beauty and appeal lie in the light hand and soft tonal hues, which add a tranquil feeling to this hunting adventure.
It's easy to imagine the artist, C. P. Roseman, set up at the edge of pond in 1907, recording the image of duck hunting 'en plein air'. The paper is well worn and the colors faded, adding immensely to the charm of this rustic artwork.
Can't you see it simply framed above a desk? Or added to a gallery of outdoor scenes? Really, this beautiful painting will easily fit anywhere in your living space.
About the artist: Little information has been found on the painter, Cornelius Price Roseman (1852-before 1920). He lived in New York, painting in both oil and watercolor mediums. His subject matter was often outdoor adventures. Whether he has formal training is unknown. His work has previously been sold through major auction houses.
