Caught on Paper

Museum,Drawings/Works on Paper

From giving something your “best shot” to feeling like a “fish out of water,” metaphors and imagery from the sports of hunting and fishing permeate American culture. Inspired by the coinciding exhibition of paintings and sculpture Wild Spaces Open Seasons: Hunting and Fishing in American Art, this selection of works on paper explores the popular outdoor subjects that have captivated American artists for centuries. Whether lithographs produced by the popular printmaking firm Currier and Ives or humorous photographs representing the day's catch on the back of a postcard, these works lure viewers into their action through their daring tales.
