That is a beautiful rendition. Who did it? Tempts me to print it, frame it, and hang it.

I saved it, printed it and plan to frame it. The quality of the printing is just as good as the picture you posted here. I have a place in my office, next to the deer horns. Its going to be a nice addition to my stuff. Thanks for doing it in the first place.

I thought no such thing, though I should have. For a picture rendered by an artist, there has to be light. Truth is, and I know you know this, effective use of light is what creates quality art. (I love that picture.)

Kib, mentions the Atom plug which, while most here from the old times would recognize it, an Atom swimmer was a lead surfcaster choice back at the time when he painted it. (1950s) The plug choice was appropriate.

But I never really appreciated Atoms though I caught two over 50 with a Junior atom. My pet plugs was either a Giant Pikie Minnow or a Rebel. But when Bramhall painted that scene Atoms were more the rigor and Rebels had not yet been invented.

Not a great image but one I haven't seen before.

Lynn Bogue Hunt (1878-1960)
Striped Bass Fishing
signed "Lynn Bogue Hunt" lower left
oil on canvas, 22 by 16 in.

Author Jim Casada notes, Lynn Bogue Hunt’s “devotion to hunting and fishing meant that the settings and situations he painted were credible, and unlike the case with some wildlife artists, one almost never encounters a scene painted by Hunt which seems contrived or artificial. Not only did he know his animals, but he understood the wider ramifications of sport as well…Hunt was, in short, an all-around sportsman. No matter what the press of work, he always found time to fish or be afield. He did this partly from a sense of pure pleasure, but he also maintained that sporting activity kept his paintings and illustrations fresh and his artist’s eye true.”

Hunt depicted striped bass fishing regularly over the course of his career, and drew particular note for a 1936 depiction of Otto Scheer’s famous boat, the precursor of the Boston Whaler. That piece, a "Field & Stream" cover, depicted striped bass fishing at Montauk Point and was accompanied by a story about striper fishing by Hunt. As an active sportsman, Hunt accurately portrays the details and spirit of his different pursuits, such as striped bass and muskellunge fishing.

Provenance: Private Collection, Tennessee

Bramhall is a resource here. Art often carries subulties that are hard to define. The above lacks the subtleties that Bramhall brings. Sometimes it is what you don't say that says stuff.
