Description

Lynn Bogue Hunt, called the "audubon of his time" by no less than the New York Times, produced over 106 covers for Field & Stream magazine in a career that spanned 56 years. He also produced classic art for stamps, cards, prints, and books, as well as illustrations for L.L.Bean catalog covers, glassware, tile, coasters and plates. In a biographical essay, Kevin Shelly describes Hunt as a man of contractions: both an ardent animal lover and a hunter; someone who felt at home in the woods, yet lived most of his life in suburban New York. Still, as George Reiger observes, "Hunt's illustrations inspire strong feelings of nostalgia, because they evoke a time when outdoor recreation was still re-creation and not yet measured in man-hours or bottom lines."
