Description: Waiting for your purchase is this wonderful vintage framed print by the artist, HY HINTERMEISTER. The picture shows two hunting dogs, a setter and a black and white pointer, on point beside a lake or river. They appear ready to flush out game birds and retrieve them, too. Marsh grass is shown in a dark mustard color, while cattails and reeds line the bank. The water is a cool, serene blue that echoes the color of the sky. Mountains and a homestead can be seen in the very far background. Just behind the black dog on the left, we can see the hunter emerging from the woods in readiness for the hunt. The name HY HINTERMEISTER can be found on the lower left side of the print. This picture is fully framed with thick old glass and a plain wooden frame, which does not detract from the scene. It has had its glass cleaned and its cardboard backing replaced. I would recommend after purchase that you have this cardboard removed and replaced with acid-free backing. It has a wire hanger on back. On the lower right side is a small printed area which says "Copyright C. Moss, 1945, Litho in USA".
Henry "Hy" Hintermeister (1897-1972) was a very popular painter and illustrator during the 1940's and 50's. He was especially noted for doing sports paintings, and those involving horses or dogs. He often included children in his scenes. Information about him is scarce, but his work speaks for him. His pictures were usually hung in dens, boys rooms, or the offices of sports enthusiasts. Many very collectible jigsaw puzzles were made from his pictures, too.
This lovely print would certainly appeal to the Hintermeister collector or to the dog or hunting enthusiast.
Measurement: The entire picture, including frame, measures 13 1/2 inches by 16 inches.
Condition: EXCELLENT vintage condition. The picture has been well cared for and only exhibits minor fading as would be expected in a print over 60 years old. No tears or water stains. VERY NICE CONDITION INDEED!
