A few 'new' Fuertes images

On a google search a few days ago I came across a few Fuertes pieces that I haven't seen before. Fuertes was a professional artist for his entire adult life, beginning from his Cornell University days. He was able to paint for books, periodicals, commisions and even Museum dioramas as his primary vocation. His productivity translates into a very large body of work now in museums libraries and private collections. Every now and again spotting a great 'new' painting of his, even a simple low-res scan from google makes it exciting to engage in the quest of learning as much as I can about his work.
