Frost. A copy of A Book of Drawings by A. B. Frost is included with this lot. Pigs A man behavin' like a pig's a shock to Natur's plan, And any decent pig's ashamed to imitate a man; Fer when a pig acts human-like, I guess he kind o' feels He's sort o' doin' violence to some o' his ideels." --Wallace Irwin in "A Book of Drawings"by A.B. Frost Arthur B. Frost was born in Philadelphia in 1851, but spent his most prolific years in New Jersey. Considered one of the great illustrators of the Golden Age of American Illustration, he illustrated more than ninety books and produced thousands of illustrations for \“Harper\’s Weekly,\” \“Scribner\’s,\” and \“Life\” magazines. Frost\’s illustrative work chronicles the mood and details of the daily life of farmers, hunters, and fishermen, as well as barnyards and pastoral motifs. By 1876, he was on Harper\’s staff working on many books, including "Tom Sawyer", "Uncle Remus", and "Mr. Dooley". He also illustrated Theodore Roosevelt\’s sporting book, "Hunting Trips of a Ranchman". Frost was an ardent sportsman who spent his summers and autumns fishing, rowing, and hunting ducks and snipe. He completed hundreds of watercolors and oils of the New Jersey seaside. Frost is best known for his hunting and shooting prints which capture the drama of sport in realistic, detailed settings. Frost lived at his estate, Moneysunk, in Convent Station, New Jersey. Provenance: Private Collection, Florida Literature: A.B. Frost, "A Book of Drawings", New York, NY, 1904, illustrated.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Arthur Burdett Frost (1851-1928) Bay Snipe Shooting, 1900 signed and dated "A.B. Frost. 1900" lower right watercolor and gouache en grisaille, 16 1/4 by 25 1/2 in. This important Frost depicts two competent hunters crouched in a blind, their bag of birds is piling up behind as they await the next flight. Frost skillfully depicts subtle details such as the water jug, lunch basket, guns, and shorebird decoys. It served as the centerfold illustration in the April 28, 1900 issue of Harper's Weekly. "Another feature of the work of Mr. Frost is that it is essentially and peculiarly American. The books that he has interpreted by means of his illustrations are concerned with people in almost every part of the Republic - New England, the South, the Middle West, and the Pacific Slope - but the characters he draws are always true to their environment; they belong to the time and the place, and could belong nowhere else; and they all show the influence of the American spirit and breathe in an atmosphere of American humor." - Joel Chandler Harris Provenance: Bud Dominic Collection, by descent Donal C. O'Brien, Jr. Collection, acquired from the above Literature: Harper's Weekly, April 28, 1900, pp. 390-391, illustrated. Arthur Burdett Frost, "A Book of Drawings," New York, NY, 1904, p. ix.
