Artist-Explorer Tony Foster is a plein air artist who lives in Cornwall, United Kingdom. Since 1982, Tony has created a series of watercolor journeys in the world’s great wildernesses.
Tony Foster’s art has always been inspired by the beauty of wild places. In no other body of work is this more apparent than in the journey. Here Foster argues for the need to return beauty to the arts, as well as to our daily lives.
This journey spans the globe with painting sites nominated by leading scientists, explorers, writers and environmentalists as “the most beautiful places in the world.” The catalogue includes color images of all 51 paintings, extracts from Foster’s diary, and an essay by acclaimed art critic Kenneth Baker.
