Description

Often depicting extinct species, Walton Ford’s paintings are meticulous, realistic studies in flora and fauna. ‘New Tricks for Ancient Wings’ is a wonderfully anachronistic portrayal of a bird from the time of the dinosaurs, the Archaeoptery.

With strong allusions to the ornithologist, naturalist, and painter, John James Audubon (1785-1851), this lithograph in colours was printed by Derriere L’Etoile in 2001, and is both signed and numbered by the Walton Ford.
