Bruce Pearson Paintings
The World Land Trust is holding its first on line auction to help raise funds for its conservation work. Well-known wildlife artist, Bruce Pearson, who is the current President of the Society of Wildlife Artists, has been a supporter of the World Land Trust ever since the Trust was founded in 1989, and on New Year’s eve 2002 he donated a selection of his paintings and field sketches to the WLT, to be sold in order to raise funds. The field sketches include drawings made in the Camargue and elsewhere, and the Whales are paintings which were published in Anthony Martin’s book Whales and Dolphins.
With many major collections already owning works by Bruce Pearson, the WLT is expecting keen competition for this painting. And 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Estancia La Esperanza Project in Patagonia – a place where whales and dolphins abound along the 12kms of coast. In addition to the paintings, Bruce Pearson also donated 100 copies of a print of a family of Bowhead Whales feeding on a shoal of plankton. Each print is individually signed by the artist, and these prints are sold at £50 ($75) each (Plus post and packing).
