Modern Wildlife Painting Summary

Modern Wildlife Painting: Wildlife Art in the Twentieth Century by Nicholas Hammond

The 20th century has seen a widespread interest in wildlife and its identification and conservation. Paintings and prints have both stimulated and reflected this interest. Primarily a pursuit of the wealthy of the 19th century, wildlife art of the period most commonly depicted animals as quarry, as worthy adversaries of the hunter. Today, artists are more likely to focus on the vulnerability of animals to man, and to further the cause of their conservation and the preservation of their habitats. This volume, in 12 chapters, examines the various forms that wildlife art takes. Each chapter is illustrated by paintings or prints that, in the author's view, best represent the genre. The work of 90 artists is shown.
