Avinoff was the Director of the Carnegie Museum of Natural History for 20 years, after being established as one of the world's greatest butterfly collectors. With a clear and profound grace in every field he endeavoured, Avinoff stands as a master painter, with works in the National Gallery and other prestigious locations and as the unsung Grandfather of the modern museum.
