A Very Rare Frank Benson Original Etching, "the Landing," 1915, Pencil Signed For Sale

A Very Rare Frank Benson Original Etching,

This is a very fine original etching by American sporting artist Frank Benson (1862-1951), titled "The Landing." Image size 71/2 x 11 3/8 inches, 1915, edition of 50, cat: Ordeman- 70, pencil signed and numbered. According to Ordeman, the image was created on the north shore of Fox Island Thorofare, Penobscot Bay, Maine. Frank Benson is widely considered the founder of the American sporting etching. In his catalog of Benson's prints, Ordeman quotes John Taylor Arms, who said of Benson, "[He] has achieved the distinction of founding a school- that of the modern sporting artist. In this, his followers and imitators have been many; his equals none." Benson was a very successful painter and a member of "The Ten" along with Childe Hassam and J. Alden Weir, before he began the sporting paintings and etchings for which he is most widely known. He was a founding member of the Boston Guild of Artists and a long time teacher at the Museum School in Boston. In 1912, at the age of 50, Benson began his etchings and drypoints, mainly of wild fowl which he depicted with expressive lines and rich toning that exquisitely captured the life and energy of the wild birds. His etchings were in high demand from the very start, and have remained favorites for collectors ever since. This etching is especially sought after because of the image itself; very few of Benson's etchings include images of people. This etching is in excellent condition, printed on watermarked Shogun paper with ample margins. There are a few faint smudges in the borders away from the image, but otherwise this etching is in near pristine condition. It comes in an archival rag mat, ready to be framed. Buyer pays shipping.
