This etching with drypoint on copper by Frank Benson measures 4 x 5 inches, pencil signed, 1931, cat: Ordeman-312, edition of 300. Benson 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.
