Oil on masonite panel, 13 " by 22 " (16" by 25" in black frame with gold inner), the subject a female mallard duck among brown grasses suggestive of autumn. The artist signed his name at lower left. S. SCOTT ZUCKERMAN (1951-) was born in Connecticut and lives there still, living a life close to nature and therefore an excellent observer of it. He is widely known for his paintings of wildlife, including fish, birds, and large mammals like moose. Zuckerman attended Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. His works have been exhibited at many private and public venues not only in New England, but throughout the United States. The prestigious New York wildlife and sporting art gallery J. N. Bartfield is one of the galleries representing the artist's works. Zuckerman's art has graced the covers of Downeast Magazine, LL Bean catalogs, Maine Sportsman, among numerous others. This painting is in excellent condition. The black portion of the framing shows some wear.
