Description:

Distribution: Extinct. The Kangaroo Island Emu, D. baudinianus became extinct around 1827 as a result of hunting and frequent fires. The larger mainland species was introduced to Kangaroo Island in the 1920s First illustrated by Alexander Charles Lessueur artist on board Baudin’s expedition which visited Kangaroo Island in December 27th, 1802. Keulemans was the most sought-after bird artist of the late19th and early 20th centuries. He was a prolific and talented work-oriented illustrator. This image is from the last great bird series, The Birds of Australia by G.Matthew&#8217s and is rarer than John Gould&#8217s work on Australian birds, with only 225 sets done. It was the last series produced to use hand colouring rather than colour printed lithography for the illustrations.
