Litterature: Raymond Sheppard, Master Illustrator, Liss Fine Art, November 2010, Cat.17
best known as an illustrator, especially of magazines such as Lilliput,
Picture Post and The Studio as well as of children’s books, Sheppard
was one of the most gifted painters of wildlife of his generation and also an extremely diverse artist, producing semi-abstract and
surrealist images alongside those of a purely realistic nature. His children, Michael and Christine, were subjects he drew frequently both informally and when posed specifically as models for commissioned illustrations.
