A Catch of Brown Trout

By Ella M. Barbour


Circa 1898

Oil on Canvas

23″ H x 33 1/2″ W Framed

It is quit unusual to have a female artist paint a sporting scene in 1898. We have little known information on the artist, however, it is clear she is extremely talented. Ella Barbour paints a scene of a fly fishing rod with four trout. The trout are freshly caught with her fly pole in the background. The overall scene created, is a charming example of late 19th century folk art.
