Atlantic Salmon – an illustrated natural history

‘Atlantic Salmon’ features a collection of paintings made by Roderick Sutterby over twenty five years. Depicting in both water-colours, pastels and large oil paintings, the life strategies of the wild salmon, from gravel bedded nursery streams to arctic Greenland coast.

‘I make the specimen studies from fish bought to me by other anglers. An initial life size, measured drawing is made in graphite pencil prior to the final water-colour study. Each work will take many days. The pastels and large oil paintings combine what I know with what I might conceive and freely imagine’.

The book has a learned narrative written by Dr. Malcolm Greenhalgh and introduction by Orri Vigfusson, Chairman, The North Atlantic Salmon Fund.

Both in English and French editions in collaboration with L' Conservatoire National du Saumon Sauvage, Chanteuges, Auvergne, France. Situated on the River Allier, a tributary of the River Loire.
This book is now out of print but copies may be found on Amazon.

‘Waiting for the Rain’ is featured in the new book, ‘FISH in ART’ by Christine E. Jackson, Reaktion Books, London.
