Donald C. Grant (1930-2001)

Born in North Shields, Northumberland in 1930 and showed an aptitude for the arts at an early age, winning a national drawing and design competition and receiving praise from the Duke of Gloucester for a large wall mural. Grant had a varied career, working as a shipbuilding draftsman, a technical illustrator, and designing advertisements, including work for Rolls Royce, Massey Ferguson, and Cadbury. He found success with his oil paintings in the 1960s following an acceptance by the Royal Academy. He is best known for his paintings depicting African wildlife. He regularly traveled to the African Savannah to observe the light, atmosphere, and animals. He became one of Britain’s leading wildlife artists, using his success to raise funds for nature conservation and animal welfare across the world.
