Collection of bird paintings
after Gould

This beautiful collection of watercolours was commissioned for a book on birds of the world in the early 1900's. The artists were Lydia Kingsley Kefford (nee Lydia Kingsley RA.) and H Goodchild. The pictures are dated between 1898 and 1908, so this project took a full ten years to complete.

The paintings consist of mainly dove and pigeon varieties with a few finch and pheasant species. The book was undertaken mainly because the Latin names for many species had changed by the end of the 19th century, and required updating.

The paintings can be sold as a collection or as individual pieces of art. At the moment ten paintings are framed and the rest are loose.
