Very well done with vibrant colors, this old painting shows a game bird - I think it is a wild turkey - nestled in the grass. Painting is titled "The Hunted" and dated "1963" reverse. Artist signed "Mary G. Sheppard" lower left. Reverse has her name along with a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania address. The only information I could find on this artist is that she was born in 1889.
The painting is in what I think is the original thin, gilt gold painted frame, wood and in good condition. The art itself is also in very good condition, not faded or foxed at all. The mat is relatively new. Measures 26" x 16 1/2" overall, image area is approximately 10" x 17 1/2".
