Archibald Thorburn is known for his detailed depictions of wild birds. Occasionally he also painted other animals, but mostly the bird life of Scotland. Thorburn also captured the wild and romantic landscape in which these animals live in his masterly watercolour paintings. The works were created in different seasons, very often in autumn and winter. But even when only a section, such as blades of grass, branches or part of a body of water are visible in the picture, the season can be recognised from the colours. Thorborn's technique consisted of sketching the animals in nature and then, in the studio, colouring them. The colours are sometimes very strong, the lines fine. This is remarkable because Thorburn used watercolours. The mastery with which the pictures were painted was recognised - even as a young man Archibald Thorburn was allowed to exhibit at the British Royal Academy.

Thorburn was born in Scotland and there he often went out into nature to observe and paint birds. His role model and teacher was the illustrator Joseph Wolf, who accompanied naturalists on their expeditions to draw animals. Thus Archibald Thorburn also specialized in the depiction of animals. He illustrated several books about the British bird world, which is how most of his works were created. Thorburn himself also published books on the animal world of Britain, some of them together with the ornithologist, bird painter and writer John Guille Millais. Thorburn wrote some of his books alone, wrote the text and designed the pictures. In this way, he also created works about the wild mammals of Great Britain. He also illustrated books about hunting and fishing. However, birds dominated Thorburn's work and were his main area of interest. He was also involved in the British Society for the Protection of Birds, and was even its deputy president for several years.

To this day Archibald Thorburn is a role model for artists who deal with the representation of wild birds. This is no wonder, since Thorburn was not only a master in his field, but also a kind of pioneer in the art scene. During his lifetime, animal motifs were not particularly popular among artists. Until then, animals were mainly drawn with ink for natural history books, the illustrations were more for information than to please the eye. Archibald Thorburn combined both in touching pictures and informative books. © Meisterdrucke
