I really love this genre oil on canvas painting. It depicts five children in late 19th or early 20th century dress in the business of training pigeons. Training pigeons was a popular pastime for people during this time; homing pigeons and other. The oldest boy is pulling open the cage door from a distance with a wire or string. The other children look on with anticipation. The entire scene appears to be at the rear of a building or possibly a house. Nicely done and signed lower right 'Burr'. There are many painters with the last name of Burr; I do not know the exact painter of this piece. Contained in a 20th century gesso frame in very good condition. Size of the canvas is approximately 24 high and 36 wide. From a private New York collection. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
