This diminutive painting of a Canada Goose painted for Ducks Unlimited was done by American sporting artist Richard Evett Bishop (1887-1975). Bishop was born in Syracuse and became well known in the Philadelphia area as an etcher and painter of wildlife, especially birds. He published a book in 1936 “Bishop’s Birds,” which he illustrated, and was the original artist for the Federal Duck Stamp Program at its inaugural in 1936. Oil on panel, inscribed and dated 52 lower right, and reads “For Ducks Unlimited” lower left, mounted to barnboard in a barnboard frame. Probably original artwork for a Ducks Unlimited stamp.
