Venue: Church of St. Andrew & St. Cuthman

An illustrated talk by Simon Martin the Director at Pallant House Gallery.

Since its publication in 1789, Gilbert White’s Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne has inspired generations of artists, writers and naturalists. From Thomas Bewick to Eric Ravilious and Clare Leighton, many artists’ depictions of animals, birds and wildlife have illustrated White’s celebrated book, together providing a microcosm of natural history illustration from the eighteenth century until today.

In his own recently published book, Drawn to Nature, Simon Martin has gathered joyful and beautiful images of the extraordinary array of wildlife described by White, and his illustrated talk will provide an inspiring insight into the continuing appeal and relevance of the timeless Natural History.
