Blue-winged Teal in Flight
New York:, undated [1902].. Fine. Fine condition. Original Charcoal and ink on paper. Image size: 10.25 x 15.25 inches. Sheet size 13 x 17.5 inches. Elegantly custom framed in Ecru rag board with gilt decoration, one inch neoclassical silver molding. Dimensions: 20 x 26 inches. Executed in charcoal and ink on paper- Charles Livingston Bull's preferred medium-an elegant composition of a Blue-winged Teal in flight leading a V formation ofr ducks at dusk. As in his drawing of the Solitary Teal, (6671) here the influence of Japanese design is unmistakable. As a collector of Japanese wood block prints- Bull studied and here utilized the finely- tuned conventions of image building commonly found in the Japanese prints of the late nineteenth century. A mature teal floats towards the viewer followed by the silhouette of birds in v formation. Patterned and tonal blocks of monochrome create the form of the floating Teal, with just the hint of landscape accentuated by the thinnest of outlines. A lovely and mysterious scene.
