"the Pursued" Original Oil Painting by Peter Darro



( - 1997). Original oil on canvas; 16" x 24". Large whitetail buck with nose up. Peter’s studio was in Chicago and, unlike many, was a painter since boyhood, later being recognized as a designated official American Field Hall or Fame artist, a member of the eminent Society of Animal Artists. As a portrait painter, his ability to transmit the essential character of a subject, won him national fame. He painted Senator Everett and Mrs. Dirksen for the Dirksen Memorial Library and Rachel Carson (author of “Silent Spring” )for the National Wildlife Hall of Fame. In murals, a major achievement is his 120' mural at the Grandview State Bank in Illinois. We acquired the balance of the paintings hanging in Peter's studio of which this is one. We went over his client list, which was "impressive" to say the least, with all paintings selling direct, not through a gallery. Period: Mid-20th century Origin: Chicago Size: 24" x 30".
