P. L. Rosseau began his formal art studies in Paris at the Académie Julian around 1894. By 1915, upon his return to the United States, he was well known as an accomplished sporting artist. So in demand, Percy Rockefeller loaned Rosseau gun dogs for models and built a studio for him to use at Overhills, Rockefeller's private golf and hunt club in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

Minor retouch to sky visible under UV light; new stretchers; new strip over tacking edge. A full restoration report is available upon request.
