Giuseppe Bottero

Italian/South African 1911-2004 


Giuseppe Bottero grew up in Piedmont, northern Italy. As a child he studied the fish, birds, insects and animals that lived in and around the river near his home, acutely aware of the life cycles of the various species. After World War II he relocated to southern Africa where he spent the rest of his life building what he termed Bottero’s African Wildlife Collection. He is most well known for The Meeting, a large painting that shows a gathering of more than 400 animals, birds, reptiles and insects in an African landscape. This work was reproduced as a poster that sold thousands of copies across the world as part of Bottero’s efforts to draw attention to the necessity of conserving the continent’s natural heritage.
