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. This image
is from the last great bird series, The
Birds of Australia
by G. Mathew’s and is rarer than John Gould’s 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.
