Lawrence Irvine, Carved and Painted Lake Trout, Maine
Lawrence Irvine, Winthrop, Maine, (1918-1998)
“I just wanted to do something different than anybody else and do it better
than anybody else." (Kennebec Journal Interview published in 1985). - SOLD


Lawrence Irvine, Carved and Painted Lake Trout, Maine
Lawrence Irvine, Winthrop, Maine, (1918-1998), entire view

This vintage lake trout carving is mounted on simulated birch bark backboard is in the
style of Maine’s master carver Lawrence Irvine. Inscribed, March 2, 1974 – Wilson Lake
– 13 Lbs. 12oz. – 33 ½” Long; also inscribed, March 3, 1976 – Wilson lake, 10 LBS. 4 OZ.
– 32” Long. [Likely recording another trophy fish landed by the angler-owner.]

Irvine was legendary hunter and fisherman in his home area of Winthrop, Maine, he is
known for his carved fish trophies. Anglers took freshly caught fish to his garage
workshop where he would create an accurate model of the fish they caught.
Irvine never charged more than $25.00 for his works, which became collector's items
and considerably increased in value after he died. Lawrence was born in Winthrop,
Maine where he lived all his life, except for the period of his service during World War
II. After seeing other carved fish at a local country fair and with the confidence that he
could do better he began carving fish in his 30s. He carved an average of 100-fish
per/year… using only simple tools he masterfully worked with pine. While he was a
master carver, his works display the skillful application of color, capturing the complexity
of the subject fish. (Length: 40.5"; height: 15.25"; depth: 9" to pectoral fin)
