An exhibition featuring original large scale paintings of Australia’s megafauna by Australian wildlife artist, author and paleontological illustrator Peter Schouten AM.
Peter Schouten has an international reputation for his specialised area as a Paleontological Reconstructionist, rebuilding a fossil species. David Attenborough termed his skills as “rare and precious” and among the world’s best. Peter has published some of Australia’s most outstanding wildlife publications.
His work features in books such as Gliding Mammals of the World, Prehistoric Animals of Australia, A Gap in Nature, Astonishing Animals, Possums of the World, Tree Kangaroos A Curious Natural History, Feathered Dinosaurs: The Origin of Birds and strangely enough, the Encyclopaedia of Asian Food. He has co-authored books with Dr Tim Flannery and Stephen Jackson as well as producing the book Megafauna which was a collaboration with Dr Ross MacPhee.
Peter’s works are featured in the collections of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, the Natural History Museum in New York, the Naturalis Museum in Holland and in David Attenborough’s private collection.
