A detailed hand colored lithograph by Edouard Travies (1809-1865) printed by Lemercier of Paris.

The work of Edouard Travies represents a pinnacle in French ornithological illustration, and his original work is exceedingly rare. Natural history, as a descriptive pursuit bent on identifying new species, demanded detailed illustrations, and the minute precision of Travies’s work places him with the best of France’s scientific artists. Travies’s images of birds are considered to be some of the finest ever produced. His illustrations describe the species of birds native to Central and South America, and all show the birds in association with flowering plants indigenous to their habitats, such as orchids and passion flowers.

Leaf: 34.5 x 26 cm

Minor marginal edgewear. Matted ready for framing.
