Thomas Alan Stephenson (1898-1961)
Thomas Stephenson was a professional zoologist with a passion for marine biology. During his life he studied the animals that live on the coasts in many parts of the world. He became famous for his study of the beautiful and delicate sea anemones.
Stephenson was an accomplished artist. In contrast with his
standard illustrative work required for scientific publications,
this impressionistic study of seaweeds represents a great
love of marine life.
