Following in the success of internationally acclaimed artist Hunt Slonem, Butterflies is the third book in his art/nature series, following Bunnies and Birds (also published by G Editions). This is an extraordinary presentation in terms of the oversized format, vast amount of artworks included, five-color printing throughout, a ribbon marker, edging on the three exterior sides of the book block, and an acetate jacket that can be removed so that consumers can have a "painting" without text on their coffee table. It is important to note that Butterflies follows two very successful publications that are mainstay collaborations between author and publisher. According to Tank Magazine: "Hunt Slonem is unabashedly in love with his subjects...and it shows.

About the Author

Hunt Slonem is an American painter, sculptor, and printmaker. He is best known for his Neo-Expressionist paintings of butterflies, bunnies, and his tropical birds, often based on a personal aviary in which he has been keeping from 30 to over 100 live birds of various species. His flair and admiration for far-flung destinations has been a staple of his life since childhood. Slonem was born in 1951 in Kittery, Maine, and his father's position as a Navy officer meant the family moved often during Hunt's formative years, including extended stays in Hawaii, California and Connecticut. After graduating with a degree in painting and art history from Tulane University in New Orleans, Slonem spent several years in the early 1970s living in Manhattan, where early works were exhibited, thrusting him into the city's explosive contemporary art scene. He received several prestigious grants, including from Montreal's Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Cultural Counsel Foundation's Artist Project.. Slonem's works can be found in the permanent collections of more than 300 museums around the world, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Whitney, the Miro Foundation and the New Orleans Museum of Art. Just some of his numerous books and monographs include: Bunnies (G Editions, 2014), Birds (G Editions, 2017) and Hunt Slonem: An Art Rich and Strange (Harry N. Abrams, 2002).
