About this title:
Lars Jonsson is widely regarded as one of the greatest bird artists of all time--no other painter of his generation captures the true look and feel of birds in the wild so beautifully. This magnificently illustrated volume collects Jonsson's most recent paintings and drawings, many published here for the first time, offering a fascinating retrospective of the artist's work from the turn of the new century to today. Lars Jonsson's Birds features 150 full-color, museum-quality reproductions of works that Jonsson painted in the field and that reflect his favorite theme of birds in a wide landscape, such as gulls, waders, ducks, and raptors.

From the Inside Flap:
"Everything that Lars applies to paper or canvas is accurate. The work may be loose or precise, but it always reflects an intimate knowledge of the subject and its situation. By presenting several points of view, the well-written text achieves a balance so that readers may enjoy Lars's art on multiple levels. As a bird artist, I particularly appreciate the sound defense of the painting of birds as art."--John Sill, wildlife artist
