Nature’s Delights

@ Bishop Auckland Town Hall

Book Now

10 September 2016 - 24 December 2016

Nature’s Delights showcases a selection of wildlife paintings by Charles Frederick Tunnicliffe, who introduced a wider audience to the countryside with his illustrations for Ladybird’s popular series What to Look for in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and The Farm. Alongside Tunnicliffe’s work are paintings by Archibald Thorburn and John Cyril Harrison showing spectacular looking birds from Scotland, Iceland and Africa.

Through the precise study of anatomy and the accurate depiction of the landscape these artists capture the drama and action of birds hunting their prey, the tranquillity of a wading snipe to the extraordinary display of magpies roosting. This collection of wildlife paintings are on loan from the Bowes Museum.
