Biography of the painter George Edward Lodge (1860-1954)

George Edward Lodge (1860-1954) was born in Lincolnshire and educated by private tutors at home. Lodge was a conservationist, artist and print maker and collaborated with Archibald Thorburn on Lord Liford's Birds of Northamptonshire.

Lodge was also an accomplished taxidermist, who worked on a number of specimens in the Natural History Museum. One of his last acts was to institute a trust fund for the publication of original works in natural history. The first publication was The Birds of The British Isles by Dr David Bannerman for which Lodge painted 377 illustrations.
