Regarded by some as the first great artist to paint big-game fish in their natural realm, Meltzoff’s work has graced the covers of Field & Stream, Scientific American, National Geographic and other publications. Close to 90 pieces of his original works have been collected for an exhibition at the Museum of American Illustration in Manhattan, NY. The exhibition, titled “Stanley Meltzoff – Oceans and Other Worlds,” kicked off on June 6 with a special reception benefitting the Tag-A-Giant Foundation, an organization committed to the conservation of bluefin tuna. The following photos are the gallery’s highlights.
