Biography:

Johannes
Gerard Keulemans (1842-1912)

Keulemans
was a Dutch bird artist and illustrator. He was born in Rotterdam and
as a young man collected animal specimens for museums such as the
Natural History Museum in Leiden, whose director, Hermann Schlegel,
encouraged Keulemans and sent him on the 1864 expedition to West
Africa. In 1869, he was persuaded by Richard Bowdler Sharpe to
illustrate his Monograph of the Alcedinidae, or Family of
Kingfishers
 (1868-1871) and to move to England, where he
lived for the rest of his life. Keulemans was the most sought-after
bird artist of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was a
prolific and talented work-oriented illustrator.
