About this book

Widely acclaimed as one of Britain's greatest natural history painters, Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935) has the unerring ability to capture the living vitality of birds and animals, and set them in magnificent wild landscapes. His monumental watercolours now command high prices at home and abroad. A fitting tribute to this master of wildlife art, this superbly-produced volume contains a collection of some of the artist's most distinguished work, with large-scale reproductions of the highest quality. Including 64 colour plates, plus over 40 drawings and black and white photographs, this is the best of Thorburn's work from private collections throughout Britain - especially the author's which is the largest collection in the world.
