Bird art hand colored 19th century lithograph of owl Joseph Wolf and J. Bowen

An example of nineteenth century ornithological printmaking in the tradition of John James Audubon, Gould and others......this image of an owl on a branch measures 21 1/2" by 15" with 3 1/2" of matting and frame. It bears the notation in the plate "Drawn from Nature by J. Wolf London 1867" at left and "Bowen and Co. lith. and col. Philada" at lower right. The print has moderate to heavy foxing and three old disturbed areas that are possibly punctures. Email me for more detailed photos. Wolf (1820-1899) worked on the continent and came to be widely recognized for the quality of his work and the manner in which he used new lithography techniques to bring the world of animal art to a new level. By 1848 he was in London where he was creating natural history lithos for the Zoological Society of London. None other than Landseer called him "the best all-round animal artist who ever lived". BOWEN worked for Audubon of course. Shipping wizard figures are guesstimates. SEE HUNDREDS OF OTHER WORKS OF ART NOW IN MY RUBY LANE SHOP.
