biography of Richard David Shepherd

Schilder en schrijver. Wilde jachtopziener te worden, maar besloot zich te wijden aan de schilderkunst. In de periode 1950-1953 volgde hij schilderlessen bij Robin Goodwin. Vanaf 1960 schildert hij Afrikaanse wilde dieren. Begaan met het lot van de fauna op dit continent, stelt hij in 1973 de opbrengst van een van zijn schilderijen beschikbaar voor 'Operation Tiger' en richt hij in 1984 'The David Shepherd Conservation Foundation' op. David Shepherd is ook bekend geworden door zijn portretten, onder meer van de Britse koningin Elizabeth (1969). Van de Britse Koninklijke Marine en Luchtmacht ontving hij opdrachten voor schilderijen met militaire onderwerpen. Een van de films over zijn werk is de BBC-documentaire 'The Man Who Loves Giants' (1971). De gelijknamige autobiografie verscheen in 1975. Daarnaast schreef hij meerdere boeken, waaronder 'Artist in Africa' (1967). Tentoonstellingen o.a. in Londen, Johannesburg en New York.
