Eric Ennion: One Man's Birds
Edited by B Walthew
One of the key figures in twentieth century wildlife art, Eric Ennion became an increasingly important influence after his death in 1981 as a new generation of young artists discovered his work. This book focuses on his field sketches from the 1930's which he kept as his lifetime reference material and which were the foundation for the development of his unique style. The sketches contained in this book are reproduced alongside a selection of his evocative writings from the period: in search of birds in the Cambridgeshire fens, Breckland, North Norfolk, in the wildest parts of Britain and in the Netherlands and Iceland. Published to coincide with the Eric Ennion studio exhibition at The Wildlife Art Gallery in November 2004, this book provides a unique record of his evolving genius. 140 pages.
