Raymond Sheppard: Capturing the Moment
'If you want to see story telling in picture form, I would strongly suggest that you find a copy of this book,' Wildscape Vol 10, No4
Raymond Sheppard's paintings and sketches had been in storage since his death in 1958, so his daughter Christine took on the task of cataloguing them herself. This book is a collaboration between author Andrew Haslen and Raymond Sheppard's family and is a permanent record of that collection, made before it was dispersed.
Raymond Sheppard was a superb observor and draftsman with the ability to draw any subject. His early death meant that not much was written about or by him. His contemporaries are no longer with us, so this is mainly a book of paintings with extracts from his drawing books written in the 1950's.
