Description
A colourful celebration of 40,000 years of ornithological art, richly illustrated with exquisite paintings and intricate studies of birds from around the world. Profiling forty artists and including beautiful examples of their work. The book charts the changing aesthetics and scientific understanding of birds through history. From 16th and 17th century-Flemish masters to 20th-century greats, artistic works demonstrate how illustrated birds developed from fanciful imaginings and domestic observation to exotic expeditions and popular, published art.

This book includes great British artists such as Mark Catesby (c.1682-1749), Thomas Bewick (1753-1828), Elizabeth Gould (1804-41), Edward Lear (1812-88), Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935), Keith Shackleton (1923-2015), and more.
