Feather and Brush traces the rich 300-year history of Australian bird art – from the crude records of the earliest European voyages of discovery to the diversity of artwork available today. It is a history in which naval draftsmen, convicts, officers, settlers, naturalists, artists and scientists alike contributed both to the art and the science of ornithology. It contains more than 250 images representing the work of 100 artists. Some are well known, others are published for the first time. All have been carefully selected for their merit, be it ornithological, historical or artistic, and celebrate the special place Australia holds in the history of bird art.
