Description:
Ogden M. Pleissner (1905-1983) The Gorge- Salmon Fishing signed "Pleissner" lower right watercolor, 17 by 27 1/2 in. Ogden Minton Pleissner was born in Brooklyn, New York, and studied figure painting and portraiture with Frank DuMond and Frederick J. Boston at the Art Students League of New York. Despite growing up in the city, Pleissner was attracted to the outdoors and as a teen he visited dude ranches in Wyoming, where he sketched from life. In later years, Pleissner and his first wife Mary were regular guests at the C-M Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. Pleissner wanted to be classified as a landscape painter first, who also loved to hunt and fish. During World War II, Pleissner painted for the United States Air Force and "Life" magazine. During his years in the service, he primarily completed watercolors as the portability and immediacy of that medium accommodated working in the field. Pleissner’’’’s work is included in more than thirty public collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and hangs in the offices of the Pentagon, West Point, and the Air Force Academy. While Pleissner’’’’s subjects range from the landscapes of Europe to salmon fishing in Quebec, his style is informed by the classical traditions. He is quoted as saying, “A fine painting is not just the subject . . . It is the feeling conveyed of form, bulk, space, dimensionality, and sensitivity. The mood of the picture, that is most important.” This classic fishing scene depicts an angler hooked up to a very large Atlantic salmon on the St. Anne River. In it, the two guides hold the blue boat steady, anticipating the next move of the powerful fish. Provenance: Private Collection, Greenwich, Connecticut

Description: OGDEN MINTON PLEISSNER (american 1905-1983)/span "JUNE, HELL'S HALF ACRE" Signed 'Pleissner' bottom right; also inscribed with title bottom left With: "JUNE-DEVIL'S HALF ACRE"/span verso; inscribed 'June-/ Devil's Half Acre/ Ristigouche; also affixed with exhibition label bottom right, watercolor on paper 20 1/4 x 27 1/4 in. (51.44 x 69.22cm) provenance: Private Collection, Virginia. exhibited:/span "New Water-Colours of Trout and Salmon Fishing by Ogden M. Pleissner", The Sporting Gallery and Bookshop, New York, New York, April 2-24, 1937, no. 12. literature:/span Charles Phair. Atlantic Salmon Fishing, New York, 1937, p. 19 (illustrated). note:/span The present watercolor will be accompanied by the aforementioned book by Charles Phair. Very good overall condition, the framed and matted watercolor with fresh colors and no evidence of any restoration. This double-sided work is painted on very heavy stock paper that is akin to card in weight. Outer areas of front of sheet are unpainted (covered over by overmat) by Pleissner's design. Front of sheet is very slightly bowed outward. We note the appearance of very pale light brownish color in an area of the white clouds at upper center right. We believe this color is part of Pleissner's chosen palette and is not toning. As visible in catalogue photo, verso of work has some discolored old glue reside (which is not sticky or tacky to the touch) along part of bottom and top outer edges, along with 'Sporting Gallery and Bookshop' label affixed to painted work on verso. The sheet is affixed to the mat with two tape pieces along top edge of the verso, and with three tape pieces along bottom edge of the verso: all five pieces affixed to the verso of the sheet and to the matting. There is some surface loss to painted are on the verso of the sheet at parts of top and bottom edges, including a small area at top edge center (in an area of old discolored glue residue) and along part of the bottom edge on verso, most easily seen in some losses to the back of the canoe at bottom of sheet, as seen in catalogue photo. Along part of the bottom edge, it is somewhat difficult to discern with accuracy whether some of the unpainted areas at/near the two boaters are merely unpainted, or whether in some of these areas the appearance of the white ground of the paper is due to surface loss (as visible in catalogue photo). Frame: 28 3/4 x 34 1/2 in.

Description:
The rarity of this work cannot be overstated. Though Ogden Pleissner created dozens of depictions of duck hunting and upland bird hunting, this is believed to be the first big game scene to ever come to auction. Back by the tent and fire, the deer or elk hunters have just returned or are preparing to head out in search of their quarry. Ogden Minton Pleissner was born in Brooklyn, New York, and studied figure painting and portraiture with Frank DuMond and Frederick J. Boston at the Art Students League of New York. Despite growing up in the city, Pleissner was attracted to the outdoors and as a teen he visited dude ranches in Wyoming, where he sketched from life.

Description:
Description: OGDEN MINTON PLEISSNER (american 1905-1983)/span FISHERMEN IN THE RIVER Signed 'Pleissner' bottom right with: HUNTING SCENE/span verso, watercolor on paper 16 x 23 in. (40.6 x 58.4cm) provenance: A gift from the Artist. By descent in the family. Private Collection, Virginia. note:/span It has been suggested that one of the two fishermen pictured in this piece is the present owner's grandfather, a friend and fishing partner of the artist. The work was most likely painted just prior to World War II. Condition Report: The watercolor is in good, fresh, condition, with no evidence of fading. The watercolor does have a heavy paper border around the edge, which we presume to be by artist design as the watercolor continues on to the border in certain areas. On the border there remains some paper and tape residue. Frame: 24 1/2 x 31 1/2 in. Descriptions provided in both printed and on-line catalogue formats do not include condition reports. The absence of a condition statement does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. Interested bidders are strongly encouraged to request a condition report on any lots upon which they intend to bid, prior to placing a bid.
