The Brief Summary reads as follows: Â"Out of the West, from the rolling, windswept prairies of North Dakota, comes this new kind of art, original and completely American, at a time when America appreciates and seeks development of native arts and crafts. To own this picture is to actually possess a bit of the beauty of AmericaÂ's prairie lands, for the artist shares with you her love for common things at hand; these native roadside weeds and grasses, these feathers of barnyard fowl, and the colorful plumage of pheasants from the land of the hunterÂ's paradise - from the bread basket of America Enhanced with gay color, the exquisite texture of dainty grasses and wild prairie flowers is combined with feather-tips carefully matched for jewel-like color, form and pattern, to make many-petalled feather-flowers and buds, and sometimes fragile butterfly wings. Simple, understanding, natural arrangements in infinite variety are made in a modern manner against softly hand-airbrushed water-color backgrounds. Exquisite workmanship and careful detail make these little treasures of today the heirlooms of tomorrow, for each one bears the personal signature by the talented hand of Ida Bisek Prokop, artist-sculptor who created this unique artcraft.Â" Artist: Ida Bisek Prokop (lived/active North Dakota) ***EXCERPTED RESEARCH INFO: Â"Ida Bisek Prokop was a multi-talented North Dakota artist who became quite well known for her 'Prairie Pictures' in the 1930's-1950's..Â" Age Period: Vintage - ca post-1931 (when she married Charles Prokop and stopped signing Â"Ida G.

A few stray Â"fringe-likeÂ" pieces have drifted to the lower portion of the picture (can easily be tidied up by opening up frame, lifting out from beneath glass, and Â"dusting offÂ" loose pieces), and a very slight section of the main flower is nicked off. Backing containing all information about the Artist and the Picture remains fully intact and sealed. *Frame - Excellent, evincing only a normal modicum of surface paint rub marks
