Frederick William Frohawk (1861-1946)
A skilled artist, lithographer and engraver, Frederick W. Frohawk is well known for his superb watercolours of mammals, birds and insects. He was commissioned by the magazine The Field to provide a range of natural history illustrations. Lord Rothschild also engaged him to illustrate his scientific publications.
This remarkable watercolour of a Tree kangaroo was based
solely on a skin in Rothschild's collection. Using his knowledge
of zoology combined with his artistic imagination, Frohawk
was able to produce this amazing lifelike representation.
