It was Sir Peter Scott's wish, before his death in 1989, to see a volume of his paintings published. This wish has been carried through by Lady Scott, who has selected all the works of art and has written the captions and preface.
This is the first and only book to cover the whole range of Sir Peter's output - ranging from early childhood sketches to the last unfinished painting: his vision of the London Wetlands Centre.
Pride of place is given to an imaginatively varied selection of the celebrated wildfowl paintings. The rest of this skilfully designed book shows the amazing versatility and creative energy of a man who, because of his many other commitments, could only devote part of his time to painting.
Here are exquisite watercolour sketches from his travel diaries; book illustrations; pencil and pen-and-ink drawings; paintings from wartime naval exploits; portraits of family and friends; designs for the original logos of the WWF and the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust; and also several works of a philosophical nature.
Sir Peter's friends and fellow painter Keith Shackleton has contributed a thoughtful and perceptive introduction, and the foreword is by HRH Prince Philip.
