A Chinese view of the deer in Richmond Park

One of the more unusual artistic images of the deer in Richmond Park is by Chinese artist Chiang Yee, who wrote and illustrated several books under the pen name ‘Silent Traveller’ while living in Britain between 1933 and 1955. He was a notable writer and artist of his time, well established on London’s art and literary scene as a lecturer and commentator on Chinese art and culture. His distinctive style can be seen in this illustration of the deer in Richmond Park from 1938.
