Painting wildlife�animals, birds, and aquatic life in the wilderness with or without humans present�has an extensive history in American visual culture. Wildlife art has evolved over more than 400 years from illustration to art in two and three-dimensional form and in the print media. The genre�s aesthetics and imagery has also evolved and influenced our ideas about nature, wild life, habitats, ecology, and environment. Caroline Welsh will give a brief overview of the history of wildlife art and Allen Blagden�s contribution to it through the exhibition installed at The Wild Center.
