The Bird: The Great Age of Avian Illustration
The Bird explores the fascinating world of 18th- and 19th-century ornithological illustration.
This was a period of scientific, artistic, and geographic discovery, when people began to fully appreciate the immense variety of form and color within the natural world. This book celebrates this beauty through the lavish illustrations produced at that time. Within each chapter, there will be an opportunity to learn a little more about the artists that helped to elevate the art form. From Audubon to Gouldand from MacGillivray to Lear we learn how technology, travel, and ambition shaped their work, and how their work transformed our understanding of the wonderful world of birds.
