Pleissner wanted to be classified primarily as a landscape painter, who also loved to hunt andfish. 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 inthe 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. Pleissner\’s subjects range from the landscapes of Europe to salmon fishing in Quebec and 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.\” Autumn Grouse Shooting shows a strong composition complete with gunner at the ready, dog staunchly holding point, and grouse on the wing crossing the brook.

Ogden M.

Pleissner" by Peter Bergh, Donal C. O'Brien, Jr. reflects on "Big Fish Rise," the painting that this work was a study for, "When I asked Ogden to do this picture, I told him that I wanted a painting that depicted what is to me the most exciting moment in outdoor sports--the rise of a large Atlantic salmon the moment just before the fly is taken. The salmon has trailed the swinging fly and is just about to come down on it. The angler and the guides know it, and their concentration is total. In another moment, all hell will break loose and this team will have their hands full." Provenance: Donal C. O'Brien, Jr. Collection Literature: Peter Bergh, "The Art of Ogden M. Pleissner," Boston, MA, 1984, p. 82.
