A. B. Frost

Chromolithographs by Arthur Burdett Frost (A.B. Frost) (1851-1928)

Born in Philadelphia in 1851, Frost joined the art department of Harper Brothers in New York becoming a very accomplished graphic artist and illustrator. He was particularly adept at illustrating sporting scenes despite his colorblindness. His execution was faultless and often described as the best representation of the sport, particularly hunting. A massive portfolio of 12 fine chromolithographic sporting prints, each measuring 13" x 20", was produced in 1895 entitled Shooting Pictures. Among the images were quail, snipe, rail,rabbit, woodcock, grouse, duck and prairie shooting. A smaller folio of the same prints was issued in 1972. New York: Winchester Press, 1972. Limited Edition of 750.
