A superb original etching by American sporting artist Frank Benson, this image measures 4 x 5 inches, published in 1917 in an edition of 150, cat: Ordeman-115, pencil signed. Benson was a very successful painter and a member of "The Ten" along with Childe Hassam and J. Alden Weir, before he began his sporting paintings and etchings for which he is most widely known. 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.
