Reveau Mott Bassett was a popular wildlife artist born in Dallas who had formal art training at the Art Students League in New York where he was a pupil of Joseph Pennell, William Robinson Leigh and Boardman Robinson. He also studied at the National Academy of Design and in Texas under Frank Reaugh, often referred to as the Dean of Texas artists. Bassett was especially known for his beautiful waterfowl paintings depicting marsh scenes at Little Sandy, a National Wildlife Refuge in East Texas.


The painting appears to be in good condition. Under UV examination, there is no evidence of restoration or inpainting.
