“Hind and Fawn” – by Harrison Weir, is a full page book plate image, taken from “Animals and their Young”, by Harland Coultas, and published by S.W.Partridge & Co, in 1891. This pleasant study, is of the quiet reticent hind, with her fawn. Once again, the drawing is imbued with the mood of conservation, and of a balanced respect for the wild. We view this seemingly calm domestic scene, through the eyes of the naturalist, interested in showing us a glimpse of the truth in nature. Likewise, reminiscent of a “still” shot, taken from a modern documentary, we get to see a restful,tranquil moment, in the life of these peace-loving wild beauties.
