Bruno Liljefors: The Peerless Eye by: Hill, Martha
Hardcover. Garden City, NY, Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1st, 1987, Book: Very Good, Dust Jacket: Good, 174 pages. Hardcover. Color plates and b/w illustrations throughout. Slightly faded gilt title on spine. Forest green fabric covered. Artist's painting adorns front of dust jacket. gSome light wear to dust jacket due to age and handling: 1 1/2 inch mended tear bottom right corner of front, a little fraying at top right corner of front, some bumping at bottom edge front, some light creasing. Very clean inside. From the front flap: "I paint animal portraits". That was how Bruno Liljefors characterised his work. Some of Liljefors' paintings of real animals with unique personalities. His fox paintings are perhaps the best examples of his pure animal portraiture. Each one is a different individual: some are young, some are old, one is confident, another fearful. ...As a hunter, Liljefors spent hours in the field observing the habits and interactions of his subjects."
