Charley Harper, whose engaging paintings portraying all kinds of creatures have delighted art and animal lovers for more than sixty years, came by his affinity for nature in rural West Virginia, where he spent his childhood stalking and sketching birds. Harper (American, 1922–2007) developed his unique style while a student at the Art Academy of Cincinnati and the Art Students League in New York City. He went on to illustrate numerous books and magazines, also creating works for conservation organizations, including the National Park Service and the Audubon Society. Through his distinctive use of simple geometric shapes, patterns, and vivid colors, Harper was able to distill the essence of each duck, dove, and quail, preserving only the most important details.
