In the style of an artist like Stark Davis is this 15 1/2" by 19 1/2" gouache painting, gold paint used for the background to the parrot and vegetation, possibly oleander, the work signed at lower left "O. Schroeter" or "O. Schraeter". I don't see a listing for this artist but he/she was possibly familiar with the works of Stark Davis, who painted such scenes in the first half of the century, or even Jessie Arms Botke, who created much more highly finished work in California, featuring exotic birds often against the gold backdrop. This work probably dates to the late 1930's to about 1950. It's in excellent condition, though there is some soiling under the glass and probably mat foxing and discoloration. Overall, it's a highly decorative piece. Allow for reflections in some images. .
