Wolfgang Weber – Wildlife Impressions - Isle of Man: Aves Publications Ltd. 1991 - One Vol. - 135 pages Folio Sized; 37 x 28 cm.

Limited edition copy of this work, in dark green full leather binding, in a matching slipcase. All edges gilt, with further gilt to the spine and front board. This item is a limited edition, signed by the artist and numbered to the limitation page. This copy is #324/360

Weber explains his choice of the impressionist style thus: ‘At the outset, my imagination was greater than my ability to draw. It took a long time to gain sufficient control over pen or brush, so that the result on paper represented the picture in my head. The first step was to master realism. Once I had mastered it, however, I gradually learned to build on it and synthesise the impressions which I saw in my mind.’

In the foreword, Ian Parker writes: ‘Wolfgang’s painting is not only distinctive and original, but has refreshingly broken away from the shackles of realism that bind most natural history painters. He simplifies landscapes, subjects and events. Dispensing with precise detail to create elemental impressions, he gets closer to the essence of what so powerfully attracts people to wildlife.’

The book contains many sketches, showing the stages to each final product. The artist describes his experiences and explains his feelings in gaining access to his subjects – giving detail as well as his impressions.

This copy is as new, held in protective packaging. Opened only to check the limitation number and to take photographs. It is also the last copy of this book I have to sell.
