Fabulous oil on canvas painting depicting a moose in a wilderness clearing by Carl Rungius copyright 1907. The painting is titled "Moose and Mate, 1907" which was written in pencil on the back of the original gilt frame in the hand of the artist. Image five shows the signature of Rugnius which matches the signature on the painting. Rungius paintings have sold upwards of $500,000 at auction. While this is not on the grand scale of those paintings, it is a beauty in its own right and is a good buy at this price level. This painting was offered in the May, 2006 Heritage Auction Galleries sale with an estimate of $50,000-70,000.
