TWO HUNTERS FIRING ON TWO MALE MALLARDS IN FLIGHT, FROM MARSH GRASSES AT THE EDGE OF A LAKE OR SOUND.

An original painting, gouache on watercolor board, 9 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches. Early morning light fills the scene before gentle hills on the horizon; the hunters' scattering shot is prominently detailed, suggesting that the painting is likely to have been produced for a shot or powder advertisement (on the verso are some blue pencil codes that are consistent with that use, as well as mounting traces). Hunt's palette is characteristic: yellow, pink, and blue skies, blue hills, blue-green water reflecting yellow light, tan grasses with purple shadows. Signed in the artist's characteristic form "Lynn / Bogue / Hunt" near the lower edge, left of center. Excellent condition, flecked with only a few tiny splatters in the image. (4391). Item #35177
