Artist: Spencer Hodge Title: Restful Moment Paper Size: 24"w x 17"h Image Size: 18"w x 11"h Medium / Edition : Paper / 425 copies. About this Piece: This Limited Edition Print has been printed with lightfast inks on acid-free, matt coated, high grade board from elemental chlorine-free pulps sourced from environmentally-conscious paper suppliers.This image depicts a female cheetah taking a rest on a rocky outcrop, with her two young cubs standing on another outcrop behind. The cheetah is the world's fastest land mammal and is capable of reaching speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour in the final burst of an attack. They prey mainly on small to medium sized antelope and each individual animal has a pattern of tail rings as unique as human fingerprints. A mane of coarse fur is often discernible on the lower neck and shoulders, particularly of younger animals. About the Artist: Spencer Hodge was born in 1943, and attended the Hastings School of Art and Royal West of England Academy. After a formal and academic art training he spent six years illustrating books and teaching material for the Medical Research Council. The dissection and drawing of the human body which this work involved gave him a profound understanding of the mechanics and structure of form.
After leaving England, Spencer Hodge travelled widely, undertaking long field trips for international conservation organisations such as the World Wide Fund for Nature. He journeyed to places such as India, West Africa, the United Arab Emirates and, particularly, the game rich areas of Tanzania and Kenya.
Many of these trips culminated in successful exhibitions to raise funds for specific conservation projects including, for example, a Bahamas National Trust exhibition under the patronage of, and opened by, HRH the Duke of Edinburgh which targeted the rare Bahamian Parrot.
Spencer Hodge has acquired a reputation as one of the finest wildlife artists this century, and he counts HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HSH Prince Rainier amongst his many admirers. His work is exhibited by leading galleries throughout Europe and America and over 40 of his limited edition prints have now been published.
Spencer Hodges passion for nature and wildlife has proved to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration throughout his career. The many hundreds of hours spent studying wild animals and birds in their natural habitat are truly reflected in the precision and realism of his dramatic work.
