Description:

WILLIAM HAYES 1735 – 1802 English ornithological watercolour artist and publisher. From the rare privately printed series, &#8220Rare and Curious Birds&#8221. He employed no fewer than seven of his children in printing and colouring the prints. In producing these bird studies Hayes produced a lightly etched image which was heavily coloured. In this way the resulting print resembled a watercolour rather than the customary hand coloured prints of the times. Many of the prints were signed by the colourists.
