Hardy was an accomplished watercolourist (a collection of his paintings is housed at the University of Wales, Lampeter) and this example of his work is finely executed and annotated on art paper, initialled by Hardy in the bottom left corner, mounted on white paper and textured brown card with an unnumbererd key set out below. Provenance: by descent from Alister Hardy, sold following the recent death of his son, Michael Hardy. Sir Alister Hardy had a distinguished career relating to the study of zooplankton but became a figure of much greater interest because of his strong spiritual leanings which led him to found the Religious Experience Research Unit which he used to press for a new understanding of the relationship between science and religion.
