For the collector of wildlife and sporting art, here is a large (19" by 33 1/2" inside the mat, 28 1/2" by 43 1/2" as framed), pencil signed print, by renowned wildlife artist DAVID SHEPHERD (1931-2017), the oils of whom have sold for over $100,000 at Sotheby's auctions. This print is not numbered as in a limited edition, though obviously the artist hand signed a limited number. The painting from which it was made is dated 1979 and is titled "Three Happy Jumbos". It is issued by Solomon and Whitehead UK, and bears a blind stamp at lower left corner in the margin. See the net for much more on the artist, who has produced consistently fine sporting art from the 1960's to the present; especially see the David Shepherd official website, which describes the artist's widely recognized efforts as a conservationist within a non-profit organization. Condition: there is a paper loss of 5/8" just above the tusk of the major elephant figure, showing as a white horizontal streak, two very small scrapes in the sky (showing in final photo as tiny white streaks) and two tiny pinpoint losses in the elephant at right. These could be easily touched up by a talented artist or restorer. Shipping will be facilitated due to the fact that the glass has been replaced with plexiglass. Frame will need to be reassembled (ask for photos).
