Frank W Benson, American, 1862-1951, "Hovering Geese". A great sporting etching by Frank Benson, this image measures 14 x 10 7/8 inches, 1922, cat: Ordeman-213, pencil signed. A very rich impression on a medium weight laid type paper. Frank Benson was a very successful painter and a member of "The Ten" along with Childe Hassam and J. Alden Weir, before he began the sporting paintings and etchings for which he is most widely known. He was a founding member of the Boston Guild of Artists and a long time teacher at the Museum School in Boston. 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. His etchings were in high demand from the very start, and have remained favorites for collectors ever since.
