The Sporting Art of Eldridge Hardie– Paintings of Upland Hunting, Angling, and Waterfowling

With a foreword by Paul Schullery and an introduction by Tom Davis, this book celebrates the artist's six decades as one of the country's best-known sporting artists.

Considered by many as the world’s foremost sporting artist, Eldridge Hardie has been painting hunters and anglers on the water and in the field for more than three decades.

This large format, 12 x 10 inch book, The Sporting Art of Eldridge Hardie, presents 150 paintings of upland bird hunters, waterfowlers and anglers. Readers will love his detailed depictions of many different breeds of gundogs. Throughout the book are sidebars relating to the general subjects of the paintings gleaned primarily from a lifetime of the artist’s own hunting and fishing experiences.

This book, with 150 paintings carefully and exquisitely reproduced, documents Hardie's lifework. Hardie has painted every kind of sporting scene—Wisconsin grouse hunts, Atlantic salmon camps, southern quail plantations, angling waters in Tierra del Fuego and Scotland, waterfowling on the Santee marsh and Chesapeake Bay, fly fishing in Bahama Flats and the Bighorn, Colorado, and the South Platte Rivers. He's painted home rivers and close-to-home fields and destinations to dream of. He recalls these times and the paintings that capture them in descriptive text. Workbook pages of preliminary studies and notations from the artist's workbooks are reproduced side by side with the paintings. These notes give a rare look into the artist's creative process.
