note:
Though raised in Brooklyn, summers spent at a Wyoming boy''s camp had a profound effect on the young Ogden Pleissner, instilling in him a life-long love of nature. As an avid sportsman, Pleissner was keenly aware of the technical aspects involved with the pursuits of fly-fishing and salmon fishing, as well as grouse and woodcock hunting – knowledge of which he successfully applied as a draftsman and watercolorist to his very popular scenes depicting man at leisure in the great outdoors.
The present painting will be accompanied by a copy of a handwritten letter from the artist, dated June 11, 1982, and locates the painting''s execution to ''quail country'' in Albany, Georgia, and references the artist''s plans to go salmon fishing the following week.
Condition Report: Framed, in excellent overall condition, with fresh colors and no evidence of restoration or losses. The work is executed on heavy grade (Whatman) paper, the (apparently) full sheet with an unpainted 'border' area outside the image, with three tape pieces at top edge, front of sheet, in the unpainted border area, affixed to undermat. The verso of sheet has three tape piece remnants that are no longer affixed to the mat, and the verso of sheet with some minor discolored old tape residue, which is not sticky or tacky (and only on the verso of the sheet). Along outer left edge, front of sheet, not in the image, there is a piece of brown papertape. We note apparent tack holes at outer upper left and upper right corners, in the image, presumably done by Pleissner during his painting of this work. The undermat to which this work is affixed has a lot of foxing spots. These foxing spots are located ONLY on the undermat and NOT on the painted work.
