Jessie Arms Botke (American, 1883-1971)

Pair of Cockatoos

oil on board
signed l.r.
20 x 24 in. (sight)


There are six small spots of in-painting located in the wings of the bird, some very close to each other. A couple of spots are on the bird's left wing (fourth feather from the outer edge of the wing), while four other spots are on the bird's right wing (second, fourth, and fifth wing from the top). All are less than a quarter inch in length; only one is just about a quarter of an inch long.
The surface of the painting has a layer of grime and could us a light cleaning. There is some cracking of the paint, especially in the gold areas.

Estimate: $20,000 - $30,000
