An exhibition of oil paintings by the late Academician John Busby. A much celebrated wildlife artist, Busby was also a dedicated landscape painter whose work was often executed in bold colours ranging from highly representational to near abstract. This exhibition offers a rewarding insight into the work of this significant artist.

John Busby

John Busby is one of the most important wildlife artists of recent years. His book Drawing Birds revolutionised the way artists capture birds in the field. Busby's deceptively simple sketches captured, with a few strokes of the pencil and watercolour wash, the essence of a bird's movement and behaviour.
