Classic Currier & Ives hunting print by Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait
This large folio hunting print by Arthur Tait is on the Currier & Ives New Best Fifty list, #46. It is a quintessential duck hunting scene. The man standing in the boat is thought to be Nathaniel Currier, who enjoyed hunting, and the seated man, Arthur Tait. It is in any event a marvellous scene depicting the happiness of sportsmen with their retrievers and shotguns pulled up on the shore of a lake at the end of a day of sport.
