Ogden Pleissner: The Sportsman's Artist
by William A. Gage, Department Head

Ogden Minton Pleissner (American, 1905-1983) was a twentieth century American artist who is best known for his fishing and hunting paintings, though most of his works were landscapes in both oils and watercolors. Early in life he painted in oils and executed landscapes including paintings of the American west. He was stationed in the Aleutian Islands during WWII and found that painting in oils was difficult as the damp climate was not conducive to drying oils. This forced him to switch to watercolors which sped up the drying process. He was a prolific artist and painted many works depicting life for the troops on the islands as well as the islands themselves.
