Angela Gladwell (1945- )
Kakapo (Strigops habroptilus), 1998.
Watercolour on paper, 570 x 770 mm.

Inspired by natural history collections in museums, Angela Gladwell applied her artistic skills to show how scientific specimens would appear in life.

This deceptively simple watercolour of the New Zealand kakapo, invites the viewer to share the artist's appreciation of this fascinating bird.
