This drypoint by artist Frank Weston Benson (American, 1862-1951) depicts a group of ducks taking flight, rising from the bottom right corner to the top of the composition, and is a typical wildlife scene for the artist.
Benson was a prominent American impressionist who worked on the East Coast. An avid birdwatcher, he desired to be a be an ornithological illustrator, but gained success for his portraits of women and children. However, his love for wildlife, and birds in particular, never waned. In 1914, he began etching and chose wildlife scenes to be his subject matter.
