Bestiarium Wilkonia - The Birds

It's time for some more lovely animal artworks by Józef Wilkon.
Part of a series of posts that has previously featured a selection of the artist's horses
big cats and little catsThe info is very limited due to language barriers!

Cover and illustration from Waldkonzert, 1979

Peacoks are a recurring theme in Wilkon's artworks.
I believe some of these are from a 1959 book titled Pawie Wierze.

  1. I love Wilkoń works. Such a great use of stains.

  2. Wow! These are so full of life. Quite daring and bold in the way they are executed!

  3. Yes! And I love the way his style changes through the years but remains so personal, so uniquely "wilkonian".

  4. such beautiful work - thank you for posting this, I had no idea about Wilkon's work. :) cheers, inaluxe
