This is a matching PAIR of prints, one of shorebirds like snipe, the other of partridge-type fowl, each print measuring 13 1/2" by 19 1/2" inside the mat (18 1/2" by 23 1/2" as framed), both by ALEXANDER POPE, JR. (1849-1924), a noted American artist from Boston who is known for his Harnett style trompe l'oeil paintings of harvested wild birds, and sporting and wildlife art. Pope was from an upper class background, and he had a lot of time to paint. Today his finest works bring very large sums at major auctions. This pair is typical of the print reproduction of his works. I believe from the texture that they would be called chromolithographs. One shows an 1879 date. One bears an old label on the back from the noted Pasadena, California Poulsen Galleries of years past. Condition appears excellent (not examined out of frame). There is some tape residue on the glass which might appear to be damage, but, it is ONLY on the glass; allow for reflections as well in some images. .
