Art of Bird Illustration: A Visual Tribute to the Lives & Achievements of the Classic Bird Illustrators
Maureen Lambourne. A delightful journey through the history of bird illustration (BI), from ancient Egypt through to the modern day. This volume is beautifully illustrated with the work of the most talented artists & ornithologists of their time, with over 100 plates reproduced in their original color. Lambourne is a descendant of the publisher John Gould, a central figure in the story of BI. She traces the varying inspirations behind the artists -- from the tomb painters of ancient Egypt, whose wildfowl were painted to sustain the dead -- to the scientific curiosity of the 19th-century explorers. She also explains the impact of ornithological discoveries & the develop. of materials & printing techniques on the art. Many of the plates are from galleries & lib. otherwise inaccessible to the gen. public.
