Robert Abbett, born in Indiana in 1926, is best known for his depictions of sporting dogs, flyfishing, and Western life. He began his career as an advertising illustrator, attending night and weekend classes at both the Chicago Academy of Fine Art and the American Academy of Art where he found himself drawn to editorial and advertising art. In 1953 he moved from Chicago to Connecticut to be closer to the editorial markets. He illustrated for Argosy, The Woman's Home Companion, Sports Afield, Reader's Digest, and True magazines. He also worked with several West Coast motion picture studios and drew covers for many of the leading paperback publishers. Abbett was commissioned to paint his first animal portrait of ?Luke? in 1970, and subsequently transitioned from working as an illustrator to a full-time gallery artist. Abbett is recognized as a master in the field of sporting art.

In this upland scene, Abbett has captured the exciting moment of two ruffed grouse flushing and the chance for a rare double.
