UNKNOWN SCHENCK WORK No. 9

In many of Albert Schenck's works, he presents a scene from nature of an animal in distress high on a mountain & under adverse weather conditions. Often with an accompanying gallery of scavengers awaiting the poor animal's inability to defend itself. A number of such works are visible throughout this site with perhaps the most famous being those featured on site page 03.

And here, thanks to Shannon ______ of San Diego, California, whom we sincerely thank, is another such fine Albert Schenck work. 19 x 23 inches in size, plus maybe a little extra under the frame edge. A winter scene of a sheep with its rear leg held in the air, most probably injured, unable to escape - her coat snagged on the undergrowth behind her. A sad but most beautiful scene.

The date of the work is not known & a label on the rear of the work simply says 'Sheep'. I cropped the image that Shannon kindly provided to be able to show the painting in its entirety without scrolling. And as a result, had to cut off the lovely old picture frame. But you can get a good idea of the beauty of the frame at both left & right. The work, Shannon believes, was once owned by the Texaco Foundation, but a great many years ago, now.
