Born in Salem, Massachusetts, Frank Benson was a painter of impressionist* seascapes and landscapes, often with figures posed by his wife and children, and also numerous hunting scenes.  He spent most of his life in the seaport town of Salem and loved trekking through the countryside for his subject matter, especially wildlife.  He is credited with making the American sporting print a distinct art form and for being one of the outstanding 20th-century wildlife printmakers.
