The famous "Lone Wolf" print, of a wolf on a winter's night staring down on a village sleeping under deep snow, an image we've all seen so often that we almost don't even "see" it anymore. The image is after a painting by Polish artist ALFRED KOWALSKI-WIERUSZ (1849-1915), a painter of the Munich School. This was one of the most reproduced prints of the 1920's, and during the 1930's Depression years, it was a common sight on many walls. One wonders if the imagery held symbolic meanings to those trying to eke out a living and keep the "wolf" from the door. The present example is in excellent condition and the frame, with blue and gold and a bit of red showing through in the slightly worn areas, has a nice patina of age. Measurements as framed are 10 1/4" by 13 1/4".
