In the spring of 2020, the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM) received five important works of art by two well-known 20th-century sporting artists: Frank Weston Benson (American, 1862–1951) and Ogden Minton Pleissner (American, 1905–1983). The addition of these paintings increases the ever-growing footprint of angling and gunning subjects within the NSLM’s art collection.
