About this book

This catalogue of paintings exhibited at the Fine Art Society, London, 7-22 June 2006, shows 41 colour illustrations of the neotropical bird family Cracidae. There are two subspecies which the artist considered sufficiently different from the main type to deserve separate depiction; and the 12 spp. of the genus Ortalis are all in one large painting.

Nigel Hughes is the first person to have painted all 50 species of curassows, guans and chachalacas from living specimens, and these paintings show them in their native habitat.

An inserted booklet describes the biology, ecology and conservation efforts to save these remarkable birds from extinction.

The exhibition went to various museums in the USA and Britain, finshing at the FAS in 2006.
