  • Albert I of Monaco...

    Albert I of Monaco (1848-1922) initially served in the navy. His real preference, however, was not the military, but the study of the oceans. In this area, he was able to achieve great success in the course of his life, for example, the then sensational perceived finding of a scaly deep-sea eelfish, which was named after his family as Lepidoteuthis grimaldii. Among other things, in 1889 he founded the Oceanographic Museum in Monaco, which opened in 1910. 1911 was followed by the opening of the Institut Océanographique in Paris (now Maison des Océans). He set up the Exotic Garden in Monaco and founded an anthropological museum. In 1910 he became an honorary member of the Russian Academy of Sciences in St. Petersburg.

    For nearly half a century, Lynn Bogue Hunt's illustrations and paintings set the American standard for artistic depictions of hunting and fishing. From magazine covers to book jackets to posters to postage stamps and calendar illustrations, Hunt's legacy as a sporting artist remains unequaled. Born in upstate New York, Hunt moved with his family to Michigan when he was twelve. He learned taxidermy as a teenager, then studied art for three years at Albion College. After a short stay in Detroit, Hunt sold a magazine cover to Field & Stream, which set his course for decades to come. He moved to Staten Island to be close to the nation's major sporting publishers and built a stunning career. Hunt's popularity was quickly established through his hunting scenes. He sold paintings to ammunition manufacturers for use on posters and calendars. DuPont, a maker of gun powder, commissioned 16 paintings for a poster series entitled Our American Game Birds, which the company published in 1917. The series was accompanied by a field guide for scattergunners. In the 1920's, as the sport of billfishing was coming into its own along the Atlantic Coast, Hunt teamed up with Kip Farrington to produce four major books about saltwater angling. He captured the brilliant color and sheer beauty of game fish in accurate and minute detail, and composed paintings filled with the drama and excitement of sport fishing.

This was a period of recollection among veterans, and the company was trying to capitalise of this sentiment. In all, a set of thirty-six battle scenes were published from designs by Louis Kurz (1835–1921), himself a veteran of the war.
