John Cyril Harrison, (1898-1985) 

As a young man Harrison studied and sketched birds, learning anatomy from the practise of taxidermy. He studied at the Slade School after the First World War and regularly visited Scotland and observed Golden Eagles. As a result of this research he illustrated Seton Gordon's Days with the Golden Eagle. In 1938 he went to Iceland to study the bird life and landscape and wrote an illustrated Bird Portraits and illustrated Jean Delacour's Pheasants of the World. He also toured Africa observing birds, animals and landscape. He lived for many years in Norfolk where he painted the rare birds of the Broads and also game birds in their natural surroundings.
