Arts Everyday Living: Through the Eyes of Wildlife Artists—Birds of a Feather…..

I was able to find little information on British artist George Crisp (1875-1916); he did seem to specialize in the subject of nests as seen above.  Swedish painter Bruno Liljefors (1860-1939) was a master of wildlife themes, sensitively depicting a variety of birds such as the thrush below.
