Description:
Arthur Burdett Frost (1851-1928) I Missed Mine to the Left, 1897 signed �A. B. Frost� lower right watercolor and gouache, 16 by 24 in. inscribed �Pheasant and Quail at Robins Island� and �I Missed Mine to the Left� lower center stamped �copyright, 1897, Harper & Brothers� lower left There lies the charm of Robins Island. You are one day in New York City. That night you are hugging a big fire in the clubhouse far away in the country with the conscientious feeling of having finished a day�s work in town before leaving. Next morning you are on the uplands or in the marshes bringing down wild birds and making wild shots, but never waiting long for another chance. And by noon you having your limit, which is a generous one, with plenty of time left to reach New York that evening and tell the family all about the day before bedtime. This is the sport of civilization, and the men of Robins Island have solved the difficult problem of bringing the free open air, the wild life of the woods and sea, with sport as thorough of its kind as can be found anywhere, into such close proximity to work and home and duty that the whole thing can be done in less than thirty-six hours. -�Fur and Feather Tales� Born in Philadelphia in 1851, A. B. Frost is considered one of the great illustrators of the �Golden Age of American Illustration.� In his lifetime he illustrated more than ninety books, such as �Tom Sawyer,� �Uncle Remus,� and �Mr. Dooley,� and produced thousands of works for �Scribner�s,� �Life,� and �Harper�s Weekly.� Frost was an ardent sportsman who spent his summers fishing, rowing, and hunting. He completed hundreds of watercolors and oils of the New Jersey seaside and is probably best known for his hunting and shooting prints that capture the drama of sport in realistically detailed landscapes. The setting of this work is Robins Island, which is comprised of 435 acres and is located between the north and south forks of Long Island. Commonly referred to as the �Jewel of the Peconic,� the land has been protected by a conservation easement since 1993. With tight, crisp brushwork and perfect proportions, �I Missed Mine to the Left� captures the most exciting parts of bird hunting. The hunters have witnessed their dogs work, the birds have flushed, and the guns are raised and fired! With its expertly rendered figures and dogs this important sporting work is a classic Frost in the truest sense. Provenance: Private Collection, Massachusetts Literature: Joseph Sears, �Fur and Feather Tales,� New York, NY, 1899, pp. 213, 205, illustrated.
