Awesome Animals Art Box

Animals, both real and imagined, have long been a favourite subject in art. Part of their beauty lies in their versatility as subjects: they are often used as symbols, but they can also be majestic creative muses in their own right. We look at creatures big and small, from wild animals with Franz Marc, Salvador Dali and Durer, to farm animals with Picasso and Tracey English, and finally at bugs and butterflies with Louise Bourgeois and Lois Ehlert.

What is the Awesome Animals Box?

Many artists have painted pictures of their domestic pets and livestock. George Stubbs, for example, widely known as a painter of horses, created stunning pictures of a multitude of animals and caught the eye of King George III as a result. The king had Stubbs paint a portrait of his scruffy yet lovable pooch in ‘A Rough Dog’, 1790. In this box, we look at a wide collection of artists, from Franz Marc to Tracey English, and at how they depict different animals in different styles, from wild creatures to farm animals, from bugs to butterflies!
