About this title


Book by Shepherd, David

From Publishers Weekly:

This impressive collection of some 70 paintings depicts Victorian England, graffiti-covered buildings in present-day Northern Ireland, jungles and parks of Africa and India, aircraft carriers and hangars, and "a down-to-earth and realistic portrayal" of Christ. A self-declared romantic, British artist Shepherd aims in much of his work to recreate the atmosphere of past days "when the pace of life moved slower" and to publicize a variety of causes ranging from endangered animals to endangered steam railways. Best known for his wildlife art, Shepherd here features elephants, lions, African buffalo and Tiger Fire ("the most celebrated painting in my career"). Unfortunately, his amusing anecdoteshis ill-fated voyage to Africa to become a game warden, his rejection from art school, his confrontations with the wild animals he paints from lifebecome redundant and tiresome.
