This is indeed an exciting time for discovery. Advances in exploration and technologies have allowed Our Generous Benefactor to employ some of the finest chroniclers of exotic flora and fauna in what is a rapacious and seemingly unending search to uncover exciting and in some cases, previously undescribed beasts of the field, sea and sky.
This display you are viewing highlights the efforts of one of our limners, simply referred to here as the Field Artist. He suffers from an annoying yet admirable sense of independence which will take him for worrying days or weeks away from whichever of our scientific parties he is connected with. Yet he always returns, gaunt and delerious, laden with new illustrations (and sometimes the bound and wriggling specimens) of his wild encounters.
We include some of his paintings here for your enjoyment.
