This is an introduction to a series of articles and graphics featuring animals in art. As a person who loves and cares about animals and an on-line activist for the cause of animal rights I often paint animals or include animals in some way in my art work. So I thought it might be interesting to showcase the work of other artists from the past and present, both the famous and not so famous who have chosen animals as subjects or have prominently included animals in their art. These articles will also include an How To Section where you can find links to art instruction information concerning the featured animal. Also an How To Help section with information concerning how you can help whichever animals is the subject of the article.

This article is slightly different from those below as it features one artist only August Friedrich Albrecht Schenck and how his paintings relate to the plight of sheep, the grief of a mother for her lamb and cruelty of farming.
