From imagined battles between tigers and antelope by Antoine-Louis Barye to running pronghorn by Bob Kuhn, this exhibition explores animal instincts via animal paintings, prints, and sculptures from the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s permanent collection – and presents an opportunity to look at theories of animal instinct and the techniques used by artists to convey motion.
