Animal art is always attractive to me. Fine lithographs such as this from a rare publication are especially desirable. This folio lithograph is from "The Mammals of Australia" by Johann Ludwing (Louis) Gerard Krefft, illustrated by Miss Harriett Scott and Mrs Helena Forde.

Mr. Krefft was a world renowned zoologist and paleontologist. Several animals were named for him. There is a great deal written about him and his interesting life. You can find highlights in Wikipedia, and other sources.

Country of Origin: Australia.

Artists, Maker: Gerard Krefft; Miss Harriett Scott and Mrs Helena Forde

Medium: Folio Lithograph with Recent Professional Hand-Coloring.

Size: 15 by 18 1/2 inches.

Condition: The work is in Very Good Antique Condition. There are some expected signs of age as you would expect from an object of substantial age that has been displayed/handled/used, usually over the lifetimes of several owners.

Circa: 1871

Literature: The Mammals of Australia.
