Overview

Considered the undisputed master painter of wildfowl on the wing, Harry Adamson at age 83, is also perhaps the oldest living wildlife artist today. Well known for his stunning landscapes awash with mallards and pintails, his originals and prints are collected by discerning sportsmen worldwide. His credits include 1979 Ducks Unlimited Artist of the Year, and First California Waterfowl Association Artist of the Year. His paintings have been exhibited nationally and internationally, notably as part of "Birds in Art" and "Animals in Art" exhibitions. Long ovberdue, From Marsh to Mountain is the only book to chronicle the artist's career from the early 40s to the present. Included are examples of his early prewar sketches and tempuras, his 1940s and 50s oils sold through Abercrombie & Fitch, Von Lengerke & Antoine, and The Crossroads of Sport, his magnificent 60s and 70s compositions many of which were printed by Wild Wings, Inc., to his diverse 80s and 90s canvases, including many pieces never publicly displayed. The text is a must for Adamson collectors and connoisseurs interested in the development of wildlife art in the last half of the twentieth century. Intended as a reference volume, the text includes a complete list of published prints and a comprehensive index and bibliography.

Editorial Reviews

Tony Arnold
Imagine having at your fingertips a whole gallery of Harry's works, smaller than the originals of course, but covering far more wildlife subjects than most of us waterfowl addicts ever imagined of him. Imagine being able to seek out at your leisure the tiny details that make Harry's art such a joy to examine with care: the hidden Eurasian pigeon mixed in with a flight of ours, the sneaky spoonie (usually pictured flying or swimming in the opposite direction from the painting's majestic sprig or mallard subjects), the modest coot casting his own critical eye over incoming waterfowl. Then turn to the Rocky Mountain sheep, the tropical birds, or even the one plate whose live subjects are just a pair of sleepy horses. And finally, from Diane's exhaustive research, learn about the man himself and how he became probably the foremost waterfowl artist in this country and perhaps in the world today.. . . I predict that first editions of this book will sell out and become collector's items before the ink has had time to dry. Its appearance just ahead of the year-end holidays makes it an ideal gift for any waterfowler.

    A Real Keeper

    This is an exquisite book, but I'm sorry to say, I will NOT pass this one along, like I do so many other books. The quality is A1 and the copy behind it is compelling and engaging - I feel like I get to know Harry - and he's an interesting guy to boot. Whether you are a duck hunter or not, you'll cherish this compendium of exceptional images. I'm not a duck hunter and neither was Harry, believe it or not. So to those of you that aren't hunters, you'll love the landscapes and the waterfowl. To those of you that are hunters, you'll believe this guy spent as much time as you did in the blinds. Go buy this and put it on your coffee table - but read it first. You'll probably find that it gets picked up by A LOT of people.
