A SHEPHERD AND HIS FLOCK AMONGST HEATHER
We thank Linda Walsh, a good friend indeed of this site, for alerting me to the listing at www.findartinfo.com, the source of the data re this Schenck work.
I used to invite you to visit a particular 'findartinfo' page but that, today, is no longer possible. And since the work did not in fact sell when it was on auction on Mar. 07, 2006, I invited you to contact Bonhams in the U.K. to enquire if the work might still be available - should you have an interest in acquiring the work. It was for sale at Bonhams at their Knightsbridge, London, U.K., location.
What we can tell you is that the work (is it not most beautiful!) is an oil on canvas, of 17.4 x 33.1 inches in size (44.2 x 84 cm) & was estimated to sell at 3,000 - 4,000 GBP. It was not signed, but surely is by our dear artist.
Titles for Schenck's works are most difficult. The title of the work, as just indicated, may better be referred to as a description of the subject matter of the work?
A pretty work. Linda we thank you for alerting the webmaster!
This Albert Schenck work was offered for sale via e-Bay in Oct. 2006. It was later re-listed but both listings are now long gone. It was however listed by 'murphyant8ju3' of Centerville, Massachusetts, U.S.A., whom I sincerely thank & whose e-Bay shop is available here. The opening bid price was U.S. $2,000 with a 'buy-it-now' price of U.S. $2,400.
The work was described as being 30 x 40 inches in size, in a modest frame.
Signed at lower left as you can see at left & below. And, though I could not spot the date on the work, it is dated 1880, I read.
The vendor kindly provided a large number of detail images - a total of 12. A beautiful work indeed!
More when I get more! Maybe YOU could provide new data or could provide a clue as to where new data about the above work (or indeed any other Schenck work) might be found. I would truly welcome your input.
