Extra info Artist

There is relatively little record of the particulars of John Martin Tracy’s early years, education, or artistic influences.
What is abundantly clear, however, is that Tracy’s reputation as one of the nation’s most admired sporting artists is unquestioned,
despite his having come to the genre fairly late in his brief life.
In 1895, a writer for the New York Times opined that “J. M. Tracy was a painter to delight the heart of all sporting men . . .
He painted the hunter before the flock of birds, the dog with tail extended and paw uplifted, as he stood quivering over the scent;
and he did it all con amore, faithfully and with full understanding and knowledge of his subject.”

Condition

Very nice painting, painting has been cleaned and is in very good condition.
Frame is in good condition, has some minor deficiencies due its age .
