No title No text. PROOF print. Can anyone identify this bird?

We do not recognize this bird. We can, however, attribute the engraving to the famous bird painter Jacques Barraband (1767 - 1809).

The author of the folio book this bird was published is most likely Francois Levaillant. The printer most likely Langlois.

The finely executed etching was printed in color and then hand-finished.

Print has wide margins, is very clean and shows only minor traces of age and use along margin edges.

Oil painting (on laminated beaver board)

A cluster of red, rose and white grapes among other fruit i(Apples, peaches, figs, pears, cherries)s surrounded, in a setting of antique ruins, by a bunch of exotic tropical birds, among them an ara and a cockatoo having a palaver over their unexpected discovery.

Well executed bizarre and whimsical painting in wonderfully bright colors and great artistic mastership.

This scurrile painting is not signed or dated. Our estimate is that it dates back to the nineteen sxties when the type of beaver board, (Hartfaser) used here, came on the market.

Colors are fresh, bright and clean. Birds and fruit are realistically depicted.

The fact, that this painting is even 12 x 16" allows for the assumption, that the artist was British or American or at least worked where inch-measuremnets are used.

Condition: Without the least of blemish!
