Description:
Robert K. Abbett (b. 1926) Timberlake Turkeys, c. 1970 signed "Abbett" lower right oil on board, 24 by 30 in. Robert Abbett, born in Indiana in 1926, is best known for his depictions of sporting dogs, fly-fishing, and western life. He began his career as an advertising illustrator, attending night and weekend classes at both the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the American Academy of Art where he found himself drawn to editorial and advertising art. In 1953 he moved from Chicago to Connecticut to be closer to the editorial markets. There he illustrated for �Argosy,� �The Woman's Home Companion,� �Sports Afield,� �Reader's Digest,� and �True� magazines. He also worked with several West Coast motion picture studios and drew covers for many of the leading paperback publishers. Robert Abbett was commissioned to paint his first animal portrait of �Luke� in 1970. It was with this painting that he transitioned from working as an illustrator to a full-time gallery artist. Abbett is recognized as a master in the field of sporting dog portraiture. His popularity and appeal have been attributed to allowing his subjects to remain individuals. In his dog images, for example, he incorporates a pose, or an expression, that makes the animal appear real and endearing. Abbett also spends significant time creating the "right" background for his images. By setting the perimeters of the story, the background supplies much of the narrative. Using his impressionistic style, Abbett often suggests time and space without giving all of the details. The intention is to draw viewers in and give them the opportunity to complete the picture with their own experiences.
