Like many of his contemporaries, Robert Abbett began his career in commercial art, providing illustrations for paperbacks, film posters and advertisements. In 1970, Abbett left the hum of New York for rural Connecticut and heeded the call of the deep woods and rolling waters that abound there. Soon, Abbett left commercial art behind as he embarked on a tremendous career painting fly fishing and, especially, bird hunting scenes.
