The subject is a wild duck and quail suspended from a nail against a board wall. It is admirably painted, and the colors of the wooden background are finished with such astonishing accuracy as to deceive the eye. It is, in fact, impossible to believe that the picture is not painted on wood when seeing it from a distance. It is a beautiful little specimen. The artist is Harvey, of Chicago. [P. 45.]
