Legendary wildlife filmmaker Sir David Attenborough viewed William T Cooper as ‘‘Australia’s greatest living scientific painter of birds,’’ adding, ‘‘he is possibly the best in the world.’’

Cooper spent a great deal of time in the field observing birds in the wild before capturing them in lively sketches brought to life in his studio. In this exhibition the focus is on his book illustrations with a selection of original watercolour paintings from the publications Parrots of the World and Pigeons and Doves of Australia.
