'Red and Blue Macaw', Henry Stacey Marks
Painting not currently on display
Marks rose to prominence with historical scenes but became best known for his colourful paintings of birds. He had a knack of capturing their character and humour with uncanny accuracy.
The decorative quality of the composition, with its carefully positioned foliage reflects the contemporary fascination with Japanese art.
