Lot Essay

A passionate conservationist, David Shepherd dedicated his 60 year career to painting the world's most iconic and endangered animals and raising funds for conservation through the sale of his work. He is well known for his naturalistic renderings of elephants, tigers and the many other animals of Africa and Asia. The present painting encapsulates the artist's empathetic perspective towards the African landscape, depicting a herd of elephants in their natural habitat of Amboseli National Park in Kenya with Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance.
