Attentive blog reader and Tidemand fan Tim pointed me with his comment to this recent and extensive entry in Wikipedia dedicated to the life and art of this Norwegian artist. Because the two postings of 29.7 and 12.8 2010 on this artist are, besides those on John Hall Thorpe, the most read postings of the Linosaurus, I decided sharing this information here.
Thank you for commenting and letting me know Tim.
Apple orchard in Bloom (1953)
After Stark Davis' colourful parrots here are some more examples of his art. Birds of paradise, phantasie birds etc.. He must have been very succesful with these compositions in his days, because all pictures I could find show these animals and all are closely resembling in style. For his inspiration (the parrots, aigrettes and gibbons) he must have been also a faithful visitor of Chicago's Lincoln Park ZOO. See also the Linosaurus : http://gerrie-thefriendlyghost.blogspot.com/2010/11/elisabeth-sawyer-norton.html . Today again his paintings (he worked mostly in pastel) fetch high prices in auctions.
