The art of Ogden M. Pleissner - First Edition

£24.99

Product description

A lovely first edition copy of the Art of Ogden M. Pleissner by Peter Bergh with an introduction by Thomas S. Buechner, President of The Corning Museum of Glass in hardback with dust jacket. The dust jacket is shelf worn and has some minor dents but is otherwise unmarked and the cloth-bound boards are mostly unmarked with small white marks on the front cover and spine. The title is in gilt on the spine and the front cover has Pleissner embossed on it. It has FFEP and FBEP with an ink sketch printed inside the covers. Inside the FFEP there is a photograph of Ogden Pleissner taken in 1938 in his New York City studio and there is a frontispiece photograph of him on the St Anne River taken in 1955. There are 138 colour plates of Pleissner's art and numerous half-tones.

Ogden Pleissner is well known to aficionados of sporting art. Yet, as the book clearly reveals, he was an artist of enormous range, talent and energy. As he was a superb draughtsman, his painting shows an obsession with exact composition, perfect perspective and the realistic depiction of human anatomy and activity.
Above all, Pleissner was a singularly gifted artist of the outdoors and of those sports that are the occupation of gentlemen. He had a genius for capturing the excitement of sport, whether it was grouse shooting in Scotland, duck hunting on the Chesapeake, or salmon fishing on the Miramichi. His seemingly effortless technique and his masterful use of colour are unsurpassed.
Here is a full representation of Pleissner at his very best, covering his early years in Broolyn, the superb work he did for the War Department during World War II, his splendid landscapes and his sporting art. This book will reward the collector, the sportsman and the connoisseur equally.
