        FUERTES, LOUIS AGASSIZ. Golden Eagle and Ptarmigan. Ink and watercolor sketch on paper. 12x9 1/2 inches sheet size; partially closed tear at lower left. United States, first quarter 20th century

        Estimate $2,000 - 3,000

        A partial remnant of a preserved early frame label signed by Fuertes indicates the finished painting as being owned by Truman E. Fassett, American painter and fellow Cornell graduate. The composition compares favorably to a finished painting held at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
