With its thorny impastos and the suggestion of a majestic vista, Two Cheetahs presents David Shepherd in his prime. From their hilltop vantage, the lithe cats–restless, even at rest–survey their world. Shepherd throws a romantic haze over the scene but lights the pair in an almost heroic way.
Though he was born in Britain, David Shepherd has spent a lifetime painting and advocating for the great game animals of Africa. He founded what has become a vital African wildlife foundation and was awarded the Order of the British Empire for his efforts.
