Synopsis

The natural beauty and diversity of birds have fascinated us for centuries. Since their first appearance in the art of ancient Egypt, birds have proved to be a popular and enduring subject for artists who have sought to capture the majesty of these wondrous creatures. Bringing together a collection of artworks depicting birds from the Renaissance to the present, this book reveals how and why birds continue to captivate. Showcasing the forms, movement and colour of a variety of species, and exploring cultural symbolism as well as concerns around climate change and biodiversity loss, it is not only a delightful visual journey but also a pertinent reminder of our impact on the natural world.
