Charley Harper (American, 1922–2007) had a keen eye for simplifying nature’s complexities while preserving the essence of the wildlife he depicted. With lively lines and expressive depictions of motion, his works reveal a deep awareness of animal behavior, particularly that of birds. His sophisticated yet playful portrayals often include visual puns, and his wit is reflected in the titles he gave his artworks. Of Wingding, in which a ruffled grouse wing-beats a possum’s log hideaway, he remarked, “The possum lives downstairs from a drummer.”
