In Lambert's Birds of Shore and Estuary, Terence Lambert presents a gallery of portraits of more than fifty different birds found wherever sea and land meet. He paints with a sure hand. Whether he is portraying a scavenging gull, a predatory skua making off with a young fledgling, a peregrine imperiously tearing at its prey, or a graceful tern returning to its mate on the nest, the birds are painted with the same superb accuracy of detail and evocative power that have distinguished his earlier work. To study these paintings is to take a journey to the coast. They conjure up the sounds and smells of the sea and the calls of birds across the bare desolation of the mudflats. When Lambert's Birds of Garden and Woodland was first published, Terence Lambert was acclaimed as a young artist of great promise. In his new book, which includes many birds living on American shorelines, that promise is amply fulfilled. Terence Lambert can now join the ranks of the best of the world's bird painters. This is a book to treasure, a delight to the eye.
