This is a biography of Louis Fuertes, who is also known as the Father of modern bird art. I was searching for books about birds, and I stumbled upon this book. This book is available free on the Amazon kindle unlimited.
As a young boy, Louis was fond of birds. He takes care of injured birds, tends them, and sometimes he sketches them. His father wanted him to be an engineer, but Louis was very fond of drawing birds. To get perfection, he understood he wanted to practice, practice and practice. Many bird painters would kill the bird, and then paint them. But Louis wanted to be gentle with them, and he will try to paint them quickly as he can. He started painting birds all around the world. He grew up, and his art is appreciated all over the world. His works are kept in the museum, and there are a lot of visitors still coming to see his works.
This book is filled with bright illustrations, and the artwork was so beautiful. Each page is filled with pictures of birds, and this book will be a perfect addition to the bird’s study. Apart from birds, this book emphasis being gentle with animals, and in turn, they will also be gentle towards us.
