A is for ... Antelope

Norbetine Bresslern-Roth (1891-1978)

Easy you would think -- so here goes.

Sable Antelope c1974 by Alister Bell (1913-97) - for sale at Bau-Xi Gallery

Alistair Macready Bell, graphic artist (b at Darlington, Eng 21 Oct 1913; d at Vancouver, BC 12 Oct 1997).

An Antelope by Neave Parker - for sale at Campbell Fine Arts

Woodcut by the French artist Gaston Albert Chopard (1883-1942)

Perhaps the best images or at least the ones that appealed to my taste the most are these last examples by the master Toshi Yoshida (1911-1995).

 Titled "Japanese Antelopes in Snow"

"Thompson Gazelles"

Not a very good selection for the first in a new series of postings.
