It is fair to say that Peter Trusler's paintings for the book Birds of Australian Gardens are revolutionary, and rank among the finest Australian natural history paintings ever done. He cleverly placed his subjects in urban, domestic and occasionally mundane environments, exactly where many of our native birds now live.
These are the original watercolours for Birds of Australian Gardens and were part of the National Bank Collection of Modern Art from 1980 until 2022.
We have joined forces with Andrew Isles Natural History Books in the promotion of these paintings
