INTO THE WILD


INTO THE WILD The history of wildlife art is fascinating. Evolving over the millennia, from the earliest rock art to the contemporary styles used by artists today, the majesty of the natural world has always been, and continues to be, a constant source of inspiration to artists. Wildlife art was largely overlooked prior to the 19th century when advances in technology allowed us to travel further and therefore encounter new species of plants and animals. The need to catalogue our natural environment followed. But the early days of exploration and discovery portended something much more disturbing; the destruction of animals and habitats at the hands of humans, and wildlife art took on a new purpose of creating an enduring record of animals which faced extinction. Other artists created images of wildlife to illustrate the beauty of the newly-discovered natural world that most had not seen before and wildlife art as we know it today was born. Into the Wild is a spectacular journey through our vast and diverse planet in all its startling beauty. Featuring original works from three masters of wildlife art, from vivid scenes of animal behaviour, to arresting portraits of the natural world, each piece puts nature in an amazing perspective - unprecedented wildlife behaviour, mesmerising new creatures and magical landscapes. Together, the collection paints a breathtaking portrait of Africa and serves as a reminder of the splendour, drama and diversity of life on earth.
