"In this stunning book, Lars Jonsson celebrates and explores the beauty of the birds that surround him during the Swedish winter months. Inspired by the desolate, wintry landscapes, the dazzling light and the stark contract of colours he observes against the snow, Jonsson has created an unparalleled collection of art. Jonsson illustrates each bird in his classic style, and his text provides information on their behaviour and insights into how to identify them as he shares personal observations as both an artist and ornithologist. This unique combination offers an intimate and compelling opportunity to better understand the method behind one of the world's preeminent bird artists."--Jacket

The Artists for Nature Foundation brings together renowned artists from all over the world to endangered locations, where their artwork focuses attention on the need for nature conservation.

This area with almost 100 endemic birds and mammals will be captured by members of the Foundation in 10 days. As they draw and paint, the artists explain what motivates them and what their feelings are for the forest and its creatures
Birds and light : the art of Lars Jonsson by Lars Jonsson( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and Swedish and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lars Jonsson is widely regarded as the greatest living bird artist. His artwork depicting birds and other wildlife has been appearing in print for more than 30 years, and his original paintings are sought after by collectors. This illustrated book describes his life and work through examples of his art and through his own words." "Part autobiography and part exploration of technical method, Birds and Light is an extraordinary and authoritative retrospective of Jonsson's career. It is also a celebration of birds, wildlife, and wild places." "Jonsson talks of a life's work studying and capturing the relationship between birds and light. Superbly reproduced artwork appears throughout the book including pages from Jonsson's earliest sketchbooks, finished plates from his field guides, and some of the artist's majestic full-scale canvases, presented at various stages of development. Jonsson discusses the artistic process, from the importance of sketching from life, to the discipline of painting for field guides and the ability to express subtlety of environment and atmosphere in paint." "Jonsson's thoughts on wildlife artistry, and his account of his own career make Birds and Light a fascinating read for all those interested in birds, birdwatching, and bird art. And the illustrations, many published here for the first time, make this book something to be treasured forever."--Jacket
