Raymond Sheppard (1913 - 1958):
Unmounted (ref: 6197)
Pen and ink, pencil on irregular paper
7 x 10 in. (17.7 x 25.3 cm)
Sheppard’s output as a graphic artist was prodigious, but he is less well known today than he might be, partly on account of his early death, at the age of forty-five. His remarkable studies of birds and animals from life were mainly undertaken at Regent’s Park Zoo. On the strength of these he was made a Fellow of the Zoological Society in 1949. In the same year, he published ‘Drawing at the Zoo’, one of three collaborations made with The Studio magazine.
