ABOUT THIS BOOK:
Artist, Frank Stick (1884-1966), was one of the finest artists to emerge from the "Golden Age of Illustration." Stick studied under the legendary Howard Pyle. Pyle was also the teacher of many other celebrated artists, including N.C. Wyeth, Oliver Kemp, Frank Schoonover, W.H.D. Koerner, Jesse Wilcox Smith, Harvey Dunn, Maxfield Parrish, and Philip Goodwin. Stick, like Goodwin, became famous for his hunting, fishing, and wildlife paintings.
Stick's art is eagerly sought by collectors today and is quickly appreciating in value. He is recognized as one of the masters of his genre, and his art hangs alongside that of Ogden Pleissner, Frank Benson, Roland Clark, Aiden Lassell Ripley, Frank Hoffman, A.B. Frost, Carl Rungius, and Lynn Bogue Hunt. This book chronicles his life and work, including his friendship with W.H.D. Koerner and Stick's marriage to Maud Hayes, a well-known artist's model in her day. (Publisher). Very good / very good. Item #9642
