The webmasters knowledge of this work is most limited. All that I think I know about it is that it was offered for sale on Mar. 18, 1992 but was not then sold. The date of the work, its size, whether it is signed or not, where it was offered or is now, etc. are all quite unknown.
'Schenck' did not seem to paint many images that did not contain sheep! This, providing it is, in fact by 'Schenck', is an exception to the norm. You might expect a signature, if there is one, to be visible, perhaps at lower left. But I cannot spot any signature. Can you?
The webmaster understand that this work is an oil on canvas of 150 x 253 cm. in size - 59 x 99.6 inches. Which was sold, on Feb. 13, 1996.
And, while I cannot tell you, today, where the data was found, it was sold at that time, I believe, by Christies, New York, for U.S. $11,100.
In 2013, on Aug. 2, 2013 in fact, a work most similar to the work above was sold at auction by Eldred's of East Dennis, Massachusetts, U.S.A. Stated to be an oil on canvas, of 16 x 23 1/2 in. in size - 40.6 x 59.7 inches - described as being 'Barn scene with sheep'. With a tiny tear in the canvas.
It was sold for U.S. $1,200, plus buyer's premium, as you can read here.
Do visit that last link. To view the 2nd image below in a truly giant size & in even greater detail. With other images including one of Schenck's undated signature at lower left. We thank & commend Eldred's for posting images of such splendid size & quality.
The webmaster understand that this work is an oil on canvas of 150 x 250 cm. in size. Which was offered for sale on Mar. 18, 1999. I do not believe it was then sold. Its date? I do not know that either.
More when I get more! Maybe YOU could provide new data or could provide a clue as to where new data about the above works (or indeed any other Schenck work) might be found. I would truly welcome your input.
