About this artwork

Francois Levaillant was a well known French bird specialist who rose to fame as one of the pioneering naturalists towards the end of the 18th century. He made his mark studying and documenting birds in their natural surroundings. This amazing piece of artwork is from Levaillant's first-ever book on parrots, created from life by animal scientist and botanic illustrator Jacques Barraband.

About the artist

François Levaillant, best known as an ornithologist, led a life filled with fascinating encounters and adventures. Much of his travel experiences read like a thrilling tale, full of prowling lions around his camps, a playful ape stealing rides on dogs, and surprisingly tasty baked elephant foot. He also found himself admiring the mannerisms of the native people he met and employed, and even painted striking portraits of Hottentats and Caffres.

Levaillant undertook three expeditions: one around Cape Town and Saldanha Bay from April to August 1781, another eastwards from the Cape between December 1781 to May 1783, and finally, a journey to the Orange River and into Great Namaqualand from June 1783 to around May 1784.

He even commissioned a massive illustrative map around 1790 for King Louis XVI, measuring nine feet wide and six feet high, detailing his travels as well as the landscape. The map was adorned with sixty-two pictures of the local fauna and flora.
