Trout Salmon Antique Lithographs, Sherman Denton, Framed
Circa 1900, Sherman Denton was hired by the New York Fish and Game Commission to illustrate North American species of fish. Considered to be the best of his work are his trout salmon chromolithographs. Here some are framed, in rag and under UV glass, in a lovey honey colored burl, solid wood frame measuring 18″ wide x 14″ high. With a little lead time I would be happy to frame your choice of fish like these. A great classic look for trout salmon fishermen!

During the 1880’s, Denton and his brothers accompanied their father, a geologist, on expeditions to Australia, New Zealand and New Guinea where he collected natural history specimens. Upon his return, Denton worked as an artist for the US Fish & Game Commission at the Smithsonian Institute, where he illustrated their annual reports and also developed and patented a method for mounting fish without them losing their natural colors. He became the leading maker of the Field Museum in Chicago and the Agassiz Museum at Harvard. Denton was hired by the State of NY Fisheries, Game and Forest Commission to illustrate their annual reports, providing the watercolor illustrations for some 100 chromo lithographs. Denton’s superb drawings vividly illustrated the appearance of live fish, and set the standard for all natural history fish illustrations.
