Then- Farm animals, especially cows, have always been popular subjects for artwork. You can still find dozens of antique paintings on eBay and other online auctions. Prices will vary from under a $100 into the thousands. (Cow oil painting currently on eBay, cow painting from One Kings Lane and Tansey’s fun cow print is available here.)
Now- Photography has replaced classic paintings with all kinds of affordable prints. (Stafford’s cow from One Kines Lane, my own cow negative and Sisi & Seb’s cow image.)
