Sherman F. Denton. “Rose Fish”. From Game Fish of New York.

New York, 1895-1907. Chromolithograph. Image ca. 5 x 10. Very good condition.

A striking print from a series of finely colored game fish which was produced around the turn of the century. These images were drawn by Sherman Foote Denton, who worked as an artist for the U.S. Fish Commission at the Smithsonian Institute.  The State of New York Fisheries, Game and Forest Commission hired Denton to illustrate their annual reports between 1895 and 1907. Like his mounted fish, prints of Denton's superb drawings vividly illustrate the appearance of live fish. Indeed, his series has become the standard by which all subsequent fish prints are judged.
