Harry Pattison was commissioned by The Nature Conservancy from 1973 through 1985 to paint a series of landscape paintings on their publicly and privately owned lands throughout the United States. These preserves were established to protect endangered flora and fauna, and to preserve pristine ecosystems which have essentially remained unchanged since before the European discovery of America.
