London artists celebrate World Migration Day 10th October 2020. We present an online exhibition focusing on birds that migrate each year. Some of them travelling thousands of miles to breed or to feed. …And of course, it’s not just birds that migrate. Sometimes we humans need to migrate too; to find food, or work or refuge from war.
So, from the humble blackbird to the exotic crowned crane, here are some artworks of migrating birds created by some of our very own Skylarks!
Here, below is Eternity a beautiful oil painting about eternal love by London artist Helen Trevisiol Duff. In it we see one red crowned crane, an endangered species in Japan, offering a gingko leaf, the symbol of eternal love, to his life-long partner. Read more details here
