Who Painted It? Get It Right And Win A Free Subscription to Wildlife Art Journal
This Artist Portrayed Cattle And Other Species
When Wildlife Art Journal first rolled out "Test Your Knowledge" in November, many readers responded to the clues with fairly astute guesses. The answer to the specific question—what is it?—was the sarcophagus raven sculpture created by Steve Kestrel
in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
Here we are looking for the name of the work and artist who created this painting that, in the eyes of some, might qualify as "cowboy" or as "Western art" in America.
Those who provide the correct answer will be given a free one-year subscription to Wildlife Art Journal. Send your responses to the comments section, below. Good luck.UPDATE
: Dear readers: We have been inundated with guesses and never believed that we would have five of you providing correct answers in so short of time. It's worth noting that the majority of correct responses came from Canadians. We are closing the contest and will have a new "Test Your Knowledge" installment up shortly after 2012 begins. Meantime, take advantage of our low-rate subscription special. Only $12 for an entire year ($25 regular rate in 2012).
Happy new year. Until the next contest, here's the answer:
The name of the oil painting, above, is "Mystic Morn" and it was created by the great Hans Heysen (1877-1968) who is considered a national treasure in Australia where it was completed. For those who want to see it in person, the piece is part of the Gallery of South Australia permanent collection in Adelaide
. (It's a gem of a museum well worth the visit).
