Gustav Muss-Armolt, Painting, Alert Wood Duck, Arm & Hammer Bird Trading Cards Illustration
Oil on canvas, frame: 14.75" x 11.75"; view: 11.5" x 8.5"


Gustav Muss-Armolt, Painting, Alert Wood Duck, Arm & Hammer Bird Trading Cards Illustration
Oil on canvas, entire view

Muss-Armolt was born in Tuckahoe, NY, in 1858; died in Avon, Massachusetts
February 9, 1927. He spent most of his professional life in New York City and
Tuckahoe; noted painter of sporting and gun dogs, also painted waterfowl, upland game
and other animal subjects including horses. He served as a director of the American
Kennel Club in New York City from 1906 to 1909. He is well represented in many
museums including the Smithsonian American Art Museum; Muss-Armolt exhibited at
the National Academy of Design in New York City

The painting of a wood duck is the illustration used in the special Gamebird Series
published by Arm & Hammer, a consumer products company. Small advertising cards
depicting this duck and other beautiful gamebirds were created for the Waterfowl
Series. (This one is number 27) Church & Dwight Co. of New York launched the
campaign in the 1880s. The corporate tradition lasted nearly 90 years, these bird
trading cards originally came in Arm & Hammer baking soda boxes and later they could
be ordered by mail. At a time when market gunners were harvesting wild birds for meat
and feathers, the Church & Dwight bird cards featured the theme “Useful birds of
America” and a simple message: “For the good of all do not destroy the birds.” Each
card carried a short interesting paragraph about the natural history of the bird portrayed.
(Original condition; frame rub and minor paint loss due to frame rabbet rub at extreme left)

Oil Painting by Pieter Symonsz Potter

TWO PEASANTS SMOKING IN A TAVERN, entire view

According to Houbraken he was the city secretary of Enkhuizen, married to the daughter of Paulus Bertius and the father of the painter Pieter I Potter, making him the grandfather of Pieter II, Paulus, and Maria Potter. According to the RKD his wife was the sister of the painter Willem Bartsius, and he was the father, not the grandfather, of Pieter II, Paulus and Maria. He was first trained as a glass painter and in 1628 moved to Leiden to learn painting in oils. He is known mostly for genre pieces and farm landscapes, and he became a member of the Delft Guild of St. Luke in 1646, and a member of the Confrerie Pictura in 1647 (though this record in the Hague guild archives may have been for drawing lessons for his oldest son Peter).1.
