Summer came softly: Grey Wagtail

Grey Wagtail

Limited edition print of Grey Wagtail by Basil Ede. Published by Royle (1974) in association with the Tryon Gallery and embossed with the Fine Art Trade Guild Stamp GDA which I think is number 231 of a Limited Edition of 750. Pencil signed in the lower right corner of the mount.

Born February 12 1931, died September 29 2016, he was a British artist specialising in birds and noted for the ornithological precision of his paintings.

He was widely regarded as one of the worlds great wildlife artists but probably best known here for his popular first book 'Birds of Town and Village' published by Country Life Books in 1965.
