Oliver Akers Douglas aka OAD (British, b. England) - Above Tollard, 2007 Paintings: Oil on Canvas

A portrait of spring growth by Abbot Handerson Thayer. Together with his son, Gerald Handerson Thayer, he wrote a major book about protective coloration in nature, titled Concealing Coloration in the Animal Kingdom: An Exposition of the Laws of Disguise Through Color and Pattern; Being a Summary of Abbott H. Thayer’s Disclosures. First published by Macmillan in 1909, then reissued in 1918, it had an effect on the use of military camouflage during World War I.
