This print by R. Davey is signed and numbered and in excellent condition. Robert Davey's use of design is outstanding often using Pennsylvania Dutch patterns to illuminate his work. He sometimes chose to paint his own mat around his paintings. While he was well known for his depiction of birds, usually done in a humorous way, they were never trite.

His work is in the permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the city of San Francisco and the Monterey Peninsula Museum of Art.
