Bellany, John - The Eagle
This is one of three images that Bellany created for The Scottish Bestiary, a book of poems and prose by George Mackay Brown published in 1986 that featured 20 prints of birds and animals by seven Scottish artists. Bellany also provided illustrations for the Capercaillie (a species of grouse) and Wild Cat (which you can see in our gallery).
The image size is 45 x 30 cm (approx 18 x 12 inches) on handmade paper, sheet size: 75 x 55 cm. It is signed by the artist and marked 25/50.
