Darwin’s Finch

By Peter Walters

  • Darwin’s Finch

About this piece

Charles Darwin’s great passions may have been beetles and barnacles but I don’t think it is easy to escape what importance a group of birds from the Galapagos islands would play on his life’s work.

Captured in this digitally illustrated artwork is a member of Darwin’s finch family, perched on a well used notebook and beneath them is the great naturalist’s breakthrough work, On the Origin of Species.

Made from nearly 50 layers, this 8×8”, limited edition (run of 50) print is finished on a textured fine art paper, a paper that delivers a rich textured finish with an archival quality.

The artwork is signed and numbered on the front and arrives sealed and backed with mounting board.

This artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by the artist.
