Originating in Belgium, the Campine is a fairly small, ornamental breed kept mostly for show, although they are capable layers of white eggs. Roosters and hens are nearly identical, as the roosters lack long tail feathers, pointed hackles and saddle feathers. These active and alert birds are rare.
Louis A. Stahmer (1875-1938) was a nationally known poultry breeder, judge and artist. For his paintings, he used the first prize winners at poultry shows in New York, Boston and Chicago as models, conforming to the new 1923 Standard of Perfection.
The WATT Global Media collection of poultry breed paintings (1926-1950) is the largest single collection of rare poultry breed portraits worldwide. The complete collection is comprised of 57 framed oil paintings of different poultry breeds created by three American artists, A.O. Schilling, L. Stahmer and F.L. Sewell, and was commissioned by J.W. Watt, founder of Watt Publishing Company in the mid-1920s.
NOTE: WATT Global Media seeks to offer the best possible image for the different canvas sizes. However, depending on the size ordered, small variations may occur due to cropping required for size and fit. Please be aware - this may mean some painting elements, including artist signature, may be cropped out of the front image, wrapped to the canvas edges or found on the backside of the frame. Prior to ordering, please check the product thumbnail pictures to view the front images captured for each size offered.
