In American Wildlife Art, author David J. Wagner tells the story of how this classic art form evolved from early watercolor drawings, like those by Mark Catesby, to John James Audubon’s classic masterpiece Birds of America, to the achievements of today’s great wildlife painters and sculptors, including such notable names as Robert Bateman, Bob Kuhn, and Kent Ullberg.

Complete with more than 300 illustrations, American Wildlife Art will appeal to collectors, conservationists, artists, and anyone who already enjoys wildlife art or is learning about it for the first time.

Simply put, the seven-pound American Wildlife Art is unprecedented as a work of academic study. But more than that, for a general audience, it is an entertaining journey that should sit on living room coffee tables and have a spot in university and family libraries as THE definitive resource.
