Walton Ford’s large-scale watercolors of animals make up a unique anthropomorphic universe rich in sly jokes and hidden meaning.
The most comprehensive survey of the artist's oeuvre to date, this fourth edition of Pancha Tantra by Taschen features 40 new works, more than 120 additional pages, and a new essay by the artist.
Pancha Tantra is an in-depth exploration of Ford's visual universe, including a complete biography and excerpts from his textual inspirations: from Indian folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin to the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and Audubon’s Ornithological Biography.
Also available is the book's Art Edition, which includes the six plate aquatint etching Granary. The print depicts crimson-capped Acorn Woodpeckers guarding their cache of acorns as the Hollywood Hills—and the famed Stahl House—are threatened by wildfire.
