Prints by Sherman F. Denton. From Game Fish of New York. New York, 1895-1907.

 

Chromolithographs

 

From a series of fine colored game fish produced at the turn of the 20th century when game fishing and hunting were becoming more of a sport than a necessity for many Americans.  The images were drawn by Sherman Foote Denton, who worked as an artist for the U.S. Fish Commission at the Smithsonian Institute. He developed a method of mounting fish that preserved their intense colors. The State of New York Fisheries, Game and Forest Commission hired Denton to illustrate their annual reports between 1895 and 1907. His superb drawings were printed in vivid and life-like color, and set the standard by which all subsequent fish prints are judged.
