Wild Turkey in French Mat

 

 

Plate 287 Wild Turkey

Chromolithograph with hand-coloring, a full sheet meauring 39 x 25-3/8 inches. The Wild Turkey (which was the first print in the Bien Edition and therefore the one print most likely to be handled) is only rarely found in good condition. This example, however, is one of the best preserved and best colored Biens I have ever seen. Overall excellent condition except for a short paper repair affecting the artist's credit. A superb example of Bien's craftsmanship; the range of colors on this print is stunning. The print was floated in a French mat when framed, and the consignor has chosen to leave it "as is" for the time being. $28000.
