Goose Shooting

Description (Brief)
This print is one of fifteen chromolithographs that were included in the 1889-1890 folio "Sport or Fishing and Shooting" published by Bradlee Whidden of Boston and edited by A.C. Gould. These prints are based on watercolors that were commissioned for the publication, and illustrated by prominent American artists. Each folio illustration was accompanied by a single leaf of descriptive text followed by an account of the depicted sporting scene. The publication was advertised as having been reviewed for accuracy by a renowned group of anglers and hunters prior to printing.
This print was originally titled and numbered on the text page as 14. [Canada] Goose Shooting. Frederic Remington. Depicted are two hunters with rifles lying on a bank beside a body of water. A dog and two dead geese are lying beside them. Geese are flying in a "V" formation in the distant background.
This print is by well known western artist, Frederick Remington (1861-1909). It is one of his first two prints to be issued in color and was published less than a decade after Remington first traveled to the American West. After Remington died, the print was reissued under the title "Pheasant Shooting."
