Museum of Wildlife Art
By a strange coincidence, yesterday I chanced upon this fanciful illustration of a bison while browsing ArtDaily news: Marcus Catesby's Der Americanische Buffel (The American Buffalo) from 1735. The artist seems to have been under the impression that the Great Plains were created by bison demolishing trees! The picture belongs to the McCloy Collection, selections from which are currently on show in the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Wyoming, USA (title link). Now read the Darwin post below and ask: Why on earth don't we have a national museum of wildlife art in the UK?
