Historical Animal Portraits

Historical animal portraits by Diz Wallis

Acclaimed British artist Diz Wallis is well known for her beautiful natural history illustrations but with her historical animal portraits she has made a detour into ‘un-natural’ history. Filthy Beasts, is a rogues’ gallery of badly behaved beasties. Some of these villains you will recognise, others will be new to you but whether royalty or ruffian you are sure to want to know more about this motley crew.

Historical animal portraits – traditional heritage with a mischievous twist

Diz is not content with simply dressing up animals, for there is always a story behind every character and that is what makes these limited edition prints so very special. For whether it’s in the glint of a eye or the curl of a feather, every detail conveys something essential about the subject. And with her astounding attention to the dirty details, the more you look at these pictures the more you will see there is to find. The intricate detailing which she adds to these portraits is reminiscent of the work of the tradition portrait painters and natural history artists who so inspired her. But Diz’s unusual take on these historical animal portraits means that these contemporary fine art limited edition prints are genuinely collectable.
