Schilling portraits

I was thrilled to win these copies of Arthur Schilling portraits at the California Classic Poultry Show raffle. They are 5" x 7" and there were two copies of each one. In order from the top, they are Buff Cochin Bantams, Old English Game Black Breasted Red Bantams, Rosecomb Bantams and Single Comb White Leghorn Bantams.

My understanding is that the originals have been dispersed and are in private collections around the country. What a wonderful project it would be to assemble them all for a special exhibit! Any art curators out there? I dream of a Fowl Trust Site that would have a wonderful gallery that could display such a collection.
