Description:
Ogden M. Pleissner (1905-1983) The Visitors signed "Pleissner" lower left oil on board, 16 by 20 in. William Macbeth, Inc, New York, NY label on back A print titled �Monday Morning,� which was made from this painting, �The Visitors,� accompanies the lot. The print was published in 1944 by Samuel T. Shaw in an edition of 275. This copy is signed in pencil "Ogden M. Pleissner" lower right, along with 44 members of the Salmagundi Club. Ogden Minton Pleissner was born in Brooklyn, New York, and studied figure painting and portraiture with Frank DuMond (1865-1951) and Frederick J. Boston (1855-1932) at Manhattan�s Art Students League. While Pleissner�s subjects range from the landscapes of Europe to salmon fishing in Quebec, his style is informed by the classical traditions. Peter Bergh writes, �But each picture is a place in time - even if neither the place nor the time ever existed, it is as if all these moments held themselves absolutely still and unchanging for Pleissner - and he has held them for us.� In 1932 one of Pleissner�s paintings was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, making him the youngest artist in their collection, and in 1941 a related Southern watercolor titled �Monday Morning� won awards and acclaim when it was exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum. Throughout the 1930s and 40s, as a member of the Salmagundi Club, Pleissner frequently won club prizes in the annual shows and gained special note from the New York Times� art critic, Howard Devree. Regarding a 1936 show at Macbeth Gallery, Devree noted the �new depth and strength in his work. The clear atmosphere and pleasing color of earlier work are none the less evident but reinforced by a deeper emotional mood...Mr. Pleissner seems to have escaped from threatened pitfalls of academic sweetness and to have arrived at individual expression in a field Hopper, Etnier, Speight and Chatterton are working from other angles.� Pleissner�s art is included in more than thirty public collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. His art hangs in the offices of the Pentagon, West Point, and the Air Force Academy. This iconic oil painting depicts a Southern cabin scene. In this work, a man in overalls visits with two women, one who carries an umbrella and wears pure white, between a wood laundry fire and a wooden cabin. A fourth figure carries on preparing the wash. The gray sky and smoke rising from the chimney contrast with the splashes of color from hanging laundry and kerchiefs, and the painting gives the sense of a formal visit while daily chores continue. Pleissner�s expert brushstrokes convey the somewhat bleak, lowland landscape, and as Peter Bergh writes, �there is something quite personal in the way his people are part of the subject, not separate from it.� Literature: Peter Bergh, "The Art of Ogden M. Pleissner," Boston, MA, 1984, pp. xii, xv, 107, print illustrated. Howard Devree, "Among the Newly Opened Exhibitions...Recent Work by Pleissner," New York Times, November 22, 1936.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Ogden M. Pleissner (1905-1983) Quail Shooting, 1960 signed "Pleissner" lower right watercolor, 18 by 28 in. Ogden Minton Pleissner was born in Brooklyn, New York and studied figure painting and portraiture with Frank DuMond (1865-1951) and Frederick J. Boston (1855-1932) at Manhattan�s Art Students League. 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. His love for the West only blossomed with the passing of years, and in the mid 1920s he went on several trips back out West, armed with his sketchbook, pencils and paints. In later years, Pleissner and his first wife, Mary, were regular guests at the C-M Ranch in Dubois, Wyoming. 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.� In 1932 one of Pleissner�s paintings was purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, making him the youngest artist in their collection. During World War II he became a correspondent for Life magazine, which helped his work achieve widespread recognition. Pleissner�s art is included in more than thirty public collections, including 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 This work was commissioned by Clifford L. Fitzgerald, Jr. around 1960, and depicts him hunting with Robert Ireland on Norias Plantation in Leon County, Florida. The land, which was first owned by Colonel Lewis S. Thompson, was sold to former New Jersey Governor Walter E. Edge, who shared the property with his friend Walter C. Teagle, chairman of the Standard Oil Company in New Jersey. Although the plantation was located in Florida, its name came from a railroad stop in Texas, where the two had hunted previously. In 1962, Fitzgerald, an advertising executive from New York City, split the land with Robert Livingston Ireland, Jr., an executive at the M.A. Hanna Company. Provenance: Estate of Clifford L. Fitzgerald, Jr. Literature: Peter Bergh, The Art of Ogden M. Pleissner, Boston, MA, 1984, p. 1.
