Re: Knight Prints

Dan Varner's message got the truncation treatment, so here it is again.  The 
site has some real treasures.

Many of Chas.R.Knight paintings and drawings are now available as high 
quality prints. There are two basic collections: one prehistoric and one 
consisting of modern animals. Particularly excellent are the small-sized 
versions of Knight's American Museum mammal murals such as the White River 
Titanothere Group, Woolly Mammoth, and (my favorite) Woolly Rhinos in a scene 
that reminds me of back home in Minnesota in my salad days. These paintings 
were later enlarged to full size using grids. Two versions of Knight's 
Charcarodon panel are here also, as well as an extremely early (by the looks 
of it) elasmosaur.

There are a number of fine modern studies including Knight's 
masterpiece, Bengal Tiger with Peacock. Go here to see them:
