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. 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." signed "Pleissner" lower right Private Collection, New York watercolor, 15 1/4 by 21 1/2 in. Ogden M. Pleissner (1905-1983)
