A work from Ogden Minton Pleissner, titled June Trout Fishing, will be available in an upcoming Copley Fine Art Auctions sale. Often regarded as a master of the watercolor medium, Pleissner captured his subjects in intricate detail. Explaining the nature of his expressive works, Ogden Minton Pleissner writes in the lot essay: “A fine painting is not just the subject . . . It is the feeling conveyed of form, bulk, space, dimensionality, and sensitivity. The mood of the picture, that is most important.” Watercolor landscapes depicting scenes of the American West became the trademark of Pleissner’s long and successful career. The offered painting shows a fisherman enjoying the early season.
The second day of the Sporting Sale 2021 event also highlights John James Audubon’s seven volumes of The Birds of America (1856).
