Description

Lithograph of a shepherdess tending a flock of sheep, by an unidentified artist, possibly after Maxfield Parrish. The woman is standing in the doorway of a barn. She is wearing a white bonnet, green blouse, blue skirt, and a white apron. She is holding a staff in her left hand. Behind the flock of sheep, there is a person holding a bucket at a well. The print is in a period frame, which is arched at the top. There are floral motifs in relief, both at the peak of the arch and at each of the four corners of the frame. There is a blue cotton cord attached to the back of the frame for hanging. At one end of this cord, there is a tasseled rosette, which has a hook on the back.
