Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
"SHARK : A Visual History" was written to accompany the exhibition of sharks in art presented at the Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, during the summer of 2012. The event was curated by the author, Richard Ellis.

The book is a riveting history of how sharks have been seen and portrayed, not only in art, but by our society. Meticulously researched and detailed, it tells the story of the way these much maligned marine predators were first characterized by sailors, then turned into the monsters of the human imagination in modern literature and films. Finally, it documents the massacre of sharks for the shark fin soup market that is currently driving them to extinction.

The artwork that illustrates it also covers a wide span of history, and turns it into a collector's dream. I am honoured to be able to say that four of my paintings, and my book on shark ethology and behaviour, are included.
