Born in Philidelphia, Pennsylvania in 1851, Arthur Burdett Frost began to work in the world of craft at the age of fifteen while apprenticing for a company that produced lithographs and engravings. Acclaimed for being a mostly self-taught artist, Frost’s only traditional artistic training occurred at the Philidelphia Academy of Fine Arts where he took night classes with Thomas Eakins. Working as an illustrator for Scribner’s and Harper’s starting in 1876, Frost made frequent trips West. He eventually purchased and settled on a farm in New Jersey before spending 1908-1916 in Paris. Upon his return he moved to live with his son in Pasadena California where he spent the rest of his life painting sporting scenes, still lives, and landscapes. Renowned for being one of Americas most favored hunting illustrators, the artist’s work has exhibited at the World’s Columbian Expo in Chicago in 1893 as well as the Paris Exposition in 1900 and is part of the permanent collections of the Library of Congress, the Delaware Museum, Brandywine River Museum, and the Oakland Museum.
