34 figure pieces, color line cut, interlocking. Darker colors. Earlier Pastime. Very appealing scene for dog lovers. Artist is Edmund Osthaus (1958 - 1928, German but immigrated to America). While Osthaus is most well-known for his sporting dog pieces, he also completed many fine landscapes of cowboys on horseback, horses, cows and traditional portraits. Many the portraits included the subject's favorite dogs. He worked in oils, water color, pen and ink and pencil. His last work, a dog's head sketched days before he died, was drawn on a friend's table cloth in pencil. Jokingly the host asked the artist to sign the work and upon the artist's death said that the scrap of fabric had become one of his most cherished possessions. NYgardgallery.com. No repairs needed.
