Sale Number 1121, Lot Number 2072, Hunting Permit Prints (RW12-RW20)Shoveller Ducks in Flight, Artist Hand Watercolor (RW12), Shoveller Ducks in Flight, Artist Hand Watercolor (RW12)Shoveller Ducks in Flight, Artist Hand Watercolor (RW12). Hand watercolor executed by the artist and signed O.J. Gromme '45 in pencil, image area 178 x 126mm on 280 x 228mm paper, pencil notations at far bottom

EXTREMELY FINE AND RARE HAND WATERCOLOR COPY OF THE ORIGINAL SKETCH BY OWEN J. GROMME FOR THE 1945 FEDERAL DUCK STAMP ISSUE.

This is an exceptional original artwork and even more desirable executed by the artist in the same year that his stamp was current. It is accompanied by an original letter from the artist, Owen J. Gromme, dated June 21, 1946, stating in part "Dear Captain Grigsby, I went right to work on your copy made from the original sketch used for the water color of three shoveler ducks which are reproduced on the 1945-46 Federal duck stamp...It is ready for you at any time convenient to call." Also accompanied by a Jul. 1945 letter from the F.H. Bresler Fine Arts Co. discussing a tirade by the artist when he discovered that the word "Copy" had been removed.

The rare 1945 Gromme print is priced in Stearns and Fink at $7,000.00 (for an edition of 250). We do not know how many hand executed watercolors were produced by Gromme in 1945, but suffice it to say that it was vastly fewer than the prints

Sale Number 1121, Lot Number 2073, Hunting Permit Prints (RW12-RW20)Shoveller Ducks in Flight (RW12), Shoveller Ducks in Flight (RW12)Shoveller Ducks in Flight (RW12). Print, signed Owen J. Gromme in pencil with "Federal Duck Stamp Design 1945" in pencil at bottom left and "146" print no. at far bottom left, image area 178 x 128mm on "FRANCE" watermarked paper measuring 253 x 200mm, printed "Copyright 1945 by The F.H. Bresler Co., Milwaukee" at top left

EXTREMELY FINE EXAMPLE OF THE 1945 FEDERAL DUCK STAMP PRINT AND EXCEPTIONALLY RARE IN THIS PRISTINE UNFRAMED FULL SIZE.

The Stearns and Fink album notes that this print is "possibly" numbered but that the numbering could be cut away or covered. This full size example with "146" (of 250) proves that they were numbered. This is noted by Stearns and Fink as the second most difficult print to obtain and this example is undoubtedly one of the finest extant. Mr. Webster was a close friend of Owen Gromme and it is fitting that he possessed such a choice example of his print.

Stearns and Fink value $7,000.00.
