19th Century American Trompe l'Oeil Hunt Painting

About

A wonderful 19th century American oil on canvas trompe l'oeil hunt painting depicting a large mallard duck hanging by a string, and a small teal duck with a few loose feathers lying on a shelf. Signed and dated, "Geo. W. Bayless, 1894" in the LR. Trompe l’oeil in painting is the representation of an object with such accuracy as to deceive the viewer into believing that the objects are actually suspended in composition. The genre has been around since before Ancient Rome and has been a favorite of collectors ever since. The trompe l'oeil genre was revived in America during the late 1800s when artists like William Harnett and John Peto brought the concept back from their studies of the European Old Masters.
