This is a beautiful pair of framed wildlife watercolor prints by listed American artist J. D. Knap. He was a renowned wildlife artist, active in the New York area. He was born during 1875 and died in 1962. He studied with J. H. Holden. He is known for designing the 1937-1938 Greater Scaups migratory bird or duck stamp issued by the United States Department of Agriculture.
The prints are matted and framed in a simple black painted wood frame. They are entitled Daybreak and Inlet. The Inlet has a flock of geese in flight over a beautiful inlet on an overcast day. Daybreak also has a flock of geese flying from the opposite direction over wetlands on an overcast day. Both prints are signed New York Published & Copyrighted 1949 by Frank J. Lowe 80 West 40th Street and artist signed on the lower right side.
They have not been examined out of their frames, but they both appear to be undamaged.
The frames measure approximately 29" Wide and are 25" Long. The print area that is visible inside the mat measures approximately 22" Wide and 18" Long. They are a good size and would work well on a large wall or accent a smaller wall placed one above the other.
