Watercolor, 11.5 x 10.25 inches
An Ohio artist, little is known of Huntington’s life and art training, but he is known primarily for his sporting art and depictions of Native Americans. That he was a true sportsman and recognized as a skilled artist is without question. Huntington authored and illustrated a number of books—Our Big Game: a Book for Sportsmen and Nature Lovers (1904), Our Feathered Game; A handbook of the North American Gamebirds (1903), Game Farming for Profit and Pleasure (with Clement Davis, 1915), Our Wild Fowl and Waders (1910), and In Brush, Sedge and Stubble: A Picture Book of the Shooting-Fields and Feathered Game of North America (1898). He also authored articles published in Century Magazine--The Amateur Photographer (1887) and Field Sports of Today (1903). Huntington is included in the Kennedy Gallery 1968 exhibition catalog, American Sports and Sportsmen Paintings of the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century, Falk’s 1990 exhibition catalog, The Annual Exhibition Record of the Art Institute of Chicago, Who was Who in American Art (Falk, 1999), Davenport’s Art Reference (2005), and The Artists Bluebook (Pierson, 2005).
