jacamars en puffbirds


giant_puffbird.jpg

John Gerrard Keulemans (1842-1912) is described by Christine Jackson as "the major bird book illustrator for 30 years at the end of the 19th century" ( Dictionary of Bird Artists of the World , 1999, p.314), and an artist who "worked to a consistently high standard." This is certainly true of the excellent illustrations in the present work. Every species is carefully depicted against a naturalistic background, with the plumage precisely indicated and beautifully coloured. Sclater notes in the preface that "The Jacamars and Puff-birds formed the subject of some of my earliest studies in Ornithology. Of the former of these families I published a Synopsis in 1852, of the latter in 1856.

Manchurian_crane.jpg

These chromo-lithographed plates were published in the Monogprah of the Cranes, 1872. The illustrations were commissioned by G.F. Westerman (1807-90), the director of the Gardens. Westerman. He appointed the German illustrator Heinrich Leutemann (1824-1905), who created fifteen of the plates. As Westerman died before the book finished, Blaauw (1860-1936) finished the text and commissioned an additional seven plates by the renowned bird artist and illustrator J.G. Keulemans (1842-1912).
