Ranney, William Tylee - The Retrieve Hunting Print

Fine Art Prints of Distinction


A Museum Quality Print of The Retrieve by William Tylee Ranney. The artist painted this hunting scene in 1850 and the next year it was purchased by William Wilson Corcoran who later donated it to his art museum, the oil on canvas was acquired by the National Gallery of Art in 2014. The painting is described thus "The Retrieve, the third of at least eight highly popular paintings of duck hunting William Tylee Ranney completed in as many years, betrays the artist's avid pursuit of the sport in the salt marshes near his home in West Hoboken, New Jersey. This particular work was even more personal: the artist’s grandson identified its setting as Hackensack Meadows, which Ranney could see from his studio, and the models were that artist’s brother (kneeling) and probably a neighbor’s groomsman, a frequent model. The Springer spaniel, proudly presenting a canvasback duck to his master, completes the trio." It appears that the dog does not want to give up his prize in this painting. An excellent gift for the hunter who has bird dogs.
