Library Journal - Library Journal
Frank W. Benson (1862-1951), who had dreamed of being an ornithological illustrator while studying at the Boston Museum, where he later became a teacher and director, had a full, award-filled career as a portraitist and painter of plein-air canvases. However, at midlife he chose to change direction and combine his life as an artist with his other passions: wildlife and sporting. Bedford, Benson's biographer (Frank W. Benson: An American Impressionist. o.p.) and guest curator of the retrospective of Benson's work that resulted in Frank W. Benson: New England Impressionist (Peabody Essex Museum, 2000), focuses here on this later period of his work. She draws on family memories and photos, diaries, and letters to acquaint us with an artist of international renown, presenting a devoted family man, keen observer, and consummate sportsman. Benson's etching, lithography, watercolor, and oil illuminate his world through images of geese in flight, hunters and dogs, a lone fisherman, and misty lakes and landscapes. Bedford also includes a chronology of the artist. These two lushly illustrated works make good companions, showing the great talent of American impressionists from a similar period and style. Bedford's is recommended for extensive collections of American art; Larkin's unique study is recommended for all collections. Joseph Hewgley, Nashville P.L.
