Thorburn Archibald Magpies

About author:

Author name: Archibald Thorburn.
(1860, Lasswade, Scotland - 1935, Godalming, England). From an early age, the younger Thorburn took a delight in drawing, filling numerous sketchbooks with studies of flora and fauna. Such direct observation from nature was to form the foundation of his art, for although he briefly attended the St. John's Wood School of Art, Thorburn received little formal training. His career as a painter of birds began in 1883 when he completed 144 plates for W.F. Swayland's Familiar Wild Birds.
