Quite a determined huntress this woman looks to be, and one whom her loyal hunting companion seems very eager to please! I think I could dedicate myself exclusively to collecting 19th c. folk art watercolors--so many compelling characters, and energetic animals, landscapes and vistas--adding up to narrative-rich scenes that I at least find it impossible not to project into and onto. And of course this one serves as a nice embodiment of a woman very much in charge.
Woman hunting with dog watercolor 10 1/16” x 7 1/8” framed, as found, in a period frame with wood panel back which may be original to it. Sight: 8 7/16 x 5 9/16.” All in very good antique condition, first half 19th c. I believe, with minor stain along top left edge of paper.
