This expressive drypoint etching of ducks taking flight by Frank Benson was published in 1918 in an edition of 150. It is pencil signed on the lower margin. This image measures 7 7/8 x 9 7/8 inches with wide margins on a sheet size of 12 1/2 x 15 3/8 inches. Benson was a very successful painter and a member of "The Ten" along with Childe Hassam and J. Alden Weir, before he began his sporting paintings and etchings for which he is most widely known. In 1912, at the age of 50, Benson began his etchings and drypoints, mainly of wild fowl which he depicted with expressive lines and rich toning that exquisitely captured the life and energy of the wild birds. His etchings were in high demand from the very start, and have remained favorites for collectors ever since. He was a founding member of the Boston Guild of Artists and a long time teacher at the Museum School in Boston.

This is a very rich impression of a great sporting etching by Frank Benson. The image size is 9 x 11 inches, published in 1918 in an edition of 150, cat: Ordeman-131, pencil signed and numbered "6". This etching is titled "Marshes at Evening" in the Ordeman catalog, although it is titled in the artist's hand on the lower margin as "Evening in the Marshes". In his catalog of Benson's prints, Ordeman quotes John Taylor Arms, who said of Benson, "[He] has achieved the distinction of founding a school- that of the modern sporting artist. In this, his followers and imitators have been many; his equals none." In this image, a flock of ducks come into the marsh to roost, silhouetted against the still bright sky of a midsummer evening.
