Description:

Distribution: QLD. Rainforests of eastern Cape York Peninsula south to Ingham. First described by Gould P.Z.S. 1858. 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. This image is from the last great bird series, The Birds of Australia by G.Matthew’ and is rarer than John Gould’ 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.

John Gerrard Keulemans (1842 - 1912)

Keulemans was born in Rotterdam and as a young man he collected animal specimens for museums such as the Natural History Museum in Leiden, whose director, Hermann Schlegel, encouraged him by sending 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.
