Raymond Sheppard and Liss Fine Art

Paul Liss has let me know that there are some original Raymond Sheppard artworks for sale and I thought I'd highlight them as they are gorgeous studies. Click on the captions to get to Liss Fine Art site


Servals (Leptailurus serval) are a medium-sized African wild cat.  Sheppard did not have the means to travel to Africa and based most  of his drawings of animals observed at Regents Park Zoo.  On the strength of these - through which he gained a reputation as one of the finest artists in this field - he was made a Fellow of the Zoological Society in 1949. In the same year, he published ‘Drawing at the Zoo’, one of three collaborations made with The Studio magazine
