German Artist Creates Stunning Paintings of Prehistoric, Extinct Animals

Katharina Barth is a German artist who enjoys capturing the world of nature on canvas. While her work is diverse, her favorite subjects are prehistoric and extinct animals.

Barth, who describes herself as “passionate animal lover and horse rider,” is capable of creating stunningly detailed paintings while relying mostly on the black and white color pallet. Her works include painting skeletons of dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus Rex or mammals like a saber-toothed tiger.

With this kind of work, Barth also wants to raise awareness of endangered species. Check out some of her paintings below.
