Lions and tigers and … griffins? Oh, my! Ever since humans first started drawing on cave walls, the animal world served as an endless source of fascination. Incorporating animal motifs into their decorative vocabulary, artists today use various commonplace creatures and mythic beasts to imbue their artwork with majesty, familiarity, or even humor. This exhibition showcases a selection of artwork depicting animals, both real and imagined.
