About this title

Synopsis:

Frank Benson's masterpiece paintings of turn-of-the-century American society, New England's ports and country, and wildlife and sporting subjects, are among the most popular American works of art. His sparkling plein air painting of young women in white dresses are widely reproduced and his etchings and sporting paintings are generally considered to be some of America's best.

This first full-scale monograph on Benson's entire career, summarizes his progress from his early promise as a young art student at the Academie Julian in Paris to his leading role as a teacher, portraitist, and painter in Boston and New England. Benson is particularly acclaimed for his splendid outdoor, sun-dappled portraits of members of his family, often in settings on the Maine coastline, as well as for his later, archetypal works of wildfowl, fishing, and hunting.

About the Author:

Faith Andrews Bedford, who is the artist's great-granddaughter, has drawn on the family's extensive archives to create a critical and authoritative portrait of the artist and his personal and professional milieu.

William H. Gerdts is one of America's leading scholars on American Impressionism and the author of numerous publications, including American Impressionism.
