This is an original oil on board by Ben Benn. The board is 11-3/4" by 9", with frame 16-1/2 by 14". The scene depicts a large reddish bird in a tree, deep in a forest. It is signed and titled at the upper right on the back of the board, "Wood Interior/Ben Benn." I guarantee that the painting is by Benn, since the painting was acquired by a friend who bought it directly from Benn over 60 years ago. The condition is very good, no holes, although a light cleaning may be in order. There is a little of the canvas showing at the lower left of the painting, and it looks like the paint was never applied to the area.
