"The Donkey Ride" is a charming depiction of the America we knew from a simpler time when life was more innocent. The artist, Henry (Hy) Hintermeister (1897-1972,) was one of the most influential and important American art illustrators of the early 20th century. This piece, probably painted as an illustration for a calendar, with its adorable characters is a real testament to the genius of this versatile virtuoso.
The painting is set into a molded frame, is in excellent condition with vivid bold colors. It is signed in the lower right hand corner by the artist.
