Artist of the Month, September 2014 — Peter Corbin

Peter Corbin

Peter Corbin

“In a painting career that has spanned more than 40 years and produced a body of work bearing comparison to the likes of A.B. Frost and Ogden Pleissner, Peter Corbin has established himself as one of the finest American sporting artists of his generation. But while his reputation is based primarily on his meticulously composed scenes of sport – fly fishing and wingshooting in particular – the paintings collected in his portfolio reveal the full range of his talent, the stunning breadth of his reach and vision. Landscapes, portraits of people and dogs, depictions of birds and other wildlife in their natural habitat, equestrian art: These too are realms in which Corbin’s classic style and respectful sensibility have made a lasting mark.” -Tom Davis

“For over forty years I have had the privilege and pleasure of recording the sporting life, the people who pursue it and the places they love. The majority of my paintings are commissioned sporting portraits of the field sports, hunting and fishing.  My work also covers equine sports, landscapes and informal portraits.  I paint from my own photographs and travel wherever necessary to get them.  A good sporting portrait should capture the essence of the experience and the mood of the scene.  I try to be as unobtrusive as possible in recording the elements of the painting.”- Peter Corbin
