Angler, hunter and above all artist, Lynn Bogue Hunt was America’s most popular and prolific outdoor illustrator of the mid-20th century. He painted a record 106 covers for Field & Stream; illustrated dozens of books on waterfowling, upland bird hunting, and saltwater fishing (many now considered classics); published several portfolios of his paintings to enormous acclaim; designed the 1939-’40 Federal Duck Stamp; and was described by no less an authority than the New York Times as “the Audubon of his time.”
He was a bon vivant, too. Perpetually tanned and angularly handsome, he cut a dashing figure in any company. His circle of friends included such sporting luminaries as S. Kip Farrington, Van Campen Heilner, Ray Holland, IGFA founder Michael Lerner, and even Ernest Hemingway, who proclaimed Hunt “the finest painter of game birds that we have in America.”
Hunt’s work has come to define the look, feel, and spirit of what was truly a Golden Age of the American outdoors . . . and the Vartanian Family Collection, begun in the mid-1980s by New Jersey sportsman Paul Vartanian, is not only the world’s largest collection of Lynn Bogue Hunt paintings, drawings, and memorabilia, but the largest and most complete collection of the work of any major sporting artist.
Here, for the first time, is the Vartanian Collection in its entirety, some 150 iconic images that will thrill Hunt fans and be a revelation to those less familiar with this legendary artist. With text by noted writer and sporting art authority Tom Davis, this spectacular book promises to do what the art of Lynn Bogue Hunt has always done: Trigger the machinery of dreams.
