PIGEONS ET LABOUREURS

The following print was offered for sale, as this page was first created, by e-Bay vendor 'prints-4-all' of the United Kingdom. A 'Schenck' work that I do not recall seeing before.

The print was published in 1875 in 'Galerie Contemporaine, Littéraire & Artistique', of 126 boulevard de Magenta, Paris, France, edited by Paul De Lacroix. Based, it would seem, upon a photograph distributed by 'Goupil & Cie'. With a reference to 'Cliché Michilet', the name of the photographer, perhaps?

Can you tell us anything about the work?

GEESE AT A HAYSTACK

This work was first presented on site in early Sep. 2016, being available for purchase via e-Bay. The original work is still for sale, in early Nov. 2016, by e-Bay vendor 'antart_gallery (1)' of Białystok, Poland. I invite you to visit that e-Bay listing. A fine 'Schenck' work that is new to the site & appears here thanks to Eric Raunig for kindly drawing the matter to the attention of the webmaster.  You can view many other items available for sale by 'antart_gallery' by clicking here.

The work is stated to be an oil on canvas, 41 x 50 cm. in size, in a frame 54 x 64 cm. in size & is signed by the artist at the lower left corner. The vendor describes the work as being 'in very good condition. The stretcher is original, and the state of the canvas is very good. Apart from very minor retouches of the sky, the painting surface is original'. The vendor's catalogue number is 24/13.

The content of the work, most particularly the many geese that are depicted, reminds me that a work simply entitled 'Geese' is referenced here in a text published in 1884. The work 'Geese' was painted in 1881 & surely would have been publicly shown in Paris at a salon. But no image of the work has come to the webmaster's attention. The two works most likely are totally unrelated.

Can you tell us anything additional about the work?

A large image of the work in its frame, the source indeed of the image above, is available with the listing & is also available here. The vendor kindly provided also an image of the rear of the frame.

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.
