Event Details

The International Wildlife Museum is pleased to present captivating portraits by celebrated artist, Laszlo Layton. This exhibition features cyanotype photographs of the Museum’s collection of fascinating animals that evoke charm and curiosity. The cyanotype, also known as the “blueprint”, is created with a simple chemical solution that forms a light sensitive emulsion known for its cyan-blue color. Layton hand paints each photograph, giving his subjects a vivid, lifelike enchantment.

Layton has exhibited throughout the United States, and his work is held in both public and private collections, including the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, and the International Wildlife Museum.

The public is invited to the grand opening of the exhibition where they can meet the artist and enjoy light refreshments.
