Walton Ford: Watercolors

Walton Ford's "The Graf Zeppelin," 2014. In this painting, Ford engages the story of Susie, the first female gorilla brought to the United States. She arrived in New York in 1929, having crossed the Atlantic in a first class cabin aboard the German airship. Ford depicts Susie mid-flight and has written marginalia from her point of view, carefully channeling her observations and state of mind. Watercolor, gouache and ink on paper, 41 x 59 3/4 inches.

Walton Ford: Watercolors

Artist Walton Ford currently has a new body of work up at Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York City. In his latest show of monumental watercolors with the gallery, Ford continues to explore the visual and narrative scope of traditional natural history painting, chronicling encounters between human culture and the natural world.

Ford draws upon his ongoing natural history research, mining literary sources, folklore and historical anecdotes for inspiration and imagery. (Yahoo News)
