Book Description George Edward Lodge Trust. Bourton, Dorset. 2010 1st edition. 8vo stapled booklet (148 x 210mm). Pp16. Colour paintings and b/w photographs throughout. Fine unread stapled paperback. This is a nicely-illustrated prospectus for an exhibition of Lodge's work which was held in turn at the Surrey Heath Museum in Camberley, the Tryon gallery in London, and Nature in Art, at Twigworth, Gloucestershire, in 2010. "George Edward Lodge has left behind his unparalleled stamp on the natural world through his artwork, records and diaries. This man of vision and scrupulous painstaking study has taught us all something of nature's wonderful realm. He has, and is inspiring generations of folk globally, even fifty six years after his death. .Over the years falconers worldwide have revered Lodge's paintings of raptors. Lodge himself was an avid falconer, and had a passion for painting birds of prey like no other bird artist of his day. His acute observations enabled him to see the characters of individual hawks, and this he depicted whilst sketching and painting them. You will probably find no better critic on raptor paintings than a falconer - as they work so closely with their hawks in the mews and field." . Seller Inventory # 41714
