WILLIAM T COOPER - (1934-2015)
WILLIAM T COOPER - (1934-2015)
 
William T. Cooper first gained artistic prominence for his ornithological illustrations in A Portfolio of Australian Birds. His international reputation was firmly established in 1973 with the publication of Parrots of the World and today Bill's paintings are housed in public galleries, government institutions and private collections throughout the world. William passed away May 10th 2015 painting till his last day.
 
Bill's talent for combining scientific accuracy with vibrant artistic technique was formally recognized in 1990 when the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia (USA) awarded him the gold medal for his 'artistic endeavours and life's work which have contributed to mankind's better understanding and appreciation of living things'. He was the first Australian to receive this prestigious award and in 1994 was awarded the Order of Australia (AO) for his contribution to Art and Ornithology.

The 1,236 fruits illustrations reproduced in this book show William T. Cooper's dedication to the world of nature. He captures the finest details - from tiny spines on pods to fibers of palm fruits and imperfections created by living creatures of the rainforest. Each painting shows the ranges in size, shape and colour of the fruit as well as a cross-section exposing the distinctive colour and texture variations of the seed. It has been a rare privilege to publish art of such magnitude, skill and beauty.
