Robert Pollien “Flying Raven” 12 x 18″ Graphite and Chalk on toned board, 2016
​Robert Pollien, a painter from Mount Desert Island, has been painting crows for 20 years. Some of his recent studies of the bird are remarkable—and set him alongside Wyeth as one of master renderers of this ubiquitous bird.  Carl Little  from his presentation  “The Wyeths: All Creatures Great and Small” Ogunquit Museum of American Art, August 2, 2016.
