    Axel Amuchastegui (born 1921) is considered one of the best wildlife illustrators of the last 100 years. He is a self trained artist driven by his love for the beauty of the natural environment in which he grew up, raised by his grandmother and parents to have a love of all the creatures of the wild. He developed a unique technique for his paintings using Chinese inks and watercolors. There is now a tremendous appreciation for Axel Amchastegui's work. Argentina has designed several postage stamps from his paintings.
