Sporting art—both historic and contemporary—now holds an established position in the American art world. The earlier tradition of commercial illustration and prints generated popular images for the masses. Artists like Winslow Homer bridged the gap when sporting art shifted into fine art circles during the turn of the 20th century. Today’s collectors see themselves as custodians of a changing and vanishing part of American history and the natural world. Ogden M. Pleissner, N. A. (1905- 1983) June Trout Fishing Limited Edition Print Signed (l.r.) 16 x 24 inches $2,400


Although American sporting art collections historically have been built on a foundation of late-nineteenth to early-twentieth century artists, our collection of the genre has been broadened to include not only some of the best known historical artists like Ogden M. Pleissner, N.A. but also the work of one of the world’s leading animaliers, Count Bernard de Claviére, renowned painter of horses, Larry Wheeler and plein air masters Joseph McGurl’s and Marc Dalessio’s sporting sailboats on mid-coast Maine.


Ogden Pleissner’s words best summarize his approach to sporting art: “A fine painting is not just the subject, not just the article or the image on the canvas. I think it is the feeling conveyed of form, bulk, space, dimensionality, and sensitivity. The mood of the picture, that is most important.”
