Wildlife art can be seen dating back to the evolution of time as rock & cave paintings of Africa, to the grotto of Lascauxion in France, as expressionism art by earlier man depicting hunting scenes, capturing basic essences of life. The images of animals continued to have a place in art during the Middle Ages. They were treated as symbols in religious works, particularly in handwritten manuscripts. The mosaics and wall paintings in Pompeii and other Roman settlements also featured many fine examples. In the fifteenth century, animals were considered serious subjects for artists. Renowned artists like Andrea Mantegna (1431-1506), Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) and Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528) all produced fine studies of animals. Discoveries in distant lands were brought back to Europe as illustration drawings by the scientists, who were beginning to study the natural world and its animals’ species.Today wildlife arts play an essential role in the conservation and protection of wildlife and nature, i.e. Tigers, Rhinos, Elephants, Polar Bears, and many more.., from becoming extinct.
Since the 1970s, the leading living artists of today like David Sheppard, Alan Hunt, Kim Donaldson, Garry Hodges & Pip Mcgarry have been directly supporting the Nature & conservation movement by contributing funds from the sale of their arts.
