About

Original hand-colored lithograph from "Birds of Great Britain," published 1862-1873. It is considered one of Gould’s greatest works and the culmination of a life spent in the world of nature and of many years experience in bird art and 19th century publishing. John Gould was a self-taught English naturalist, a gifted artist and a talented taxidermist. A man of vision with a talent for organization and administration, he founded an empire for ornithological illustration, publishing more than forty large folio volumes. These works contained over 3,000 plates, all superbly drawn and meticulously hand colored. The first work appeared in 1831 and the last in 1888, seven years after Gould's death. Image size: 13.75 x 18.25 inches.
