Additional Information

Following in the footsteps of Ogden M. Pleissner and Arthur Burdett Frost, Robert Abbett is widely considered one of the great painters of sporting scenes, particularly images of fishing, hunting and bird dogs. Born in Indiana, Abbett was prolific as an illustrator in New York City in the 1950s. He moved to Connecticut in the 1970s and began to explore his easel work, including his popular and highly collected sporting scenes. This painting originated near his Connecticut home on the Aspetuck River, known for its abundant fishing opportunities.
