The Bird Man of the Palette and Chisel

I was looking through
the exhibitors
in the 1930
36th Annual P&C members' show,
and discovered
Stark Davis (1885-1950)

who painted birds
(specifically, parrots)
instead of
and bowls of fruit.

Which makes him stand out
from the other members
of the P&C

He later moved to the west coast
where he worked
as an animation artist
for team Disney.

Can't you imagine
that above creature
soaring through Fantasia ?

I'm not sure he
would qualify as a naturalist

but he would definitely
qualify for Art Deco

and he's he first P&C member
I've seen
who has obviously
been looking
at Far Eastern painting.
