Oil on canvas painting of oxen team plowing by George A. Hays, signed lower right and dated 1900.  Hays, an American artist (1854-1945), is well-known for his livestock paintings of cows and sheep.  He frequently painted scenes which, even at the time he painted them, represented a vanishing way of life, as is the case with this team of oxen painted in 1900 when mechanized farming was well on its way to replacing animal teams.
