Lewin Birds of Great Britain Prints 1795

William Lewin (1747-1795) was a highly regarded naturalist and natural history illustrator. His was the first attempt to include all the eggs of the British birds in a work on birds. He did not live to see the publication of his second edition, which was completed by his sons. The illustrations are quite unlike most 18th century bird art in that they have a striking simplicity of line and a classicism that make them seem quite contemporary. The birds are captured in captivating, lifelike poses that avoid the stiff look of many of the works of this era. Each print measures approximately 9 inches by 11 3/4 inches.
