Kanguroo Dorsal (Macropus dorsalis).
Kanguroo Dorsal (Macropus dorsalis). De La Nouvelle Hollande 1/12.
Werner & de Bar Del. Annedouche & de Bar sculp.
Imp Delamain et Sarazin Git-le-Caeur, 8 Paris [n.d., c.1855].
Hand coloured engraving. Sheet size: 257 x 172mm (10¼ x 6¾").
Plate 44 after a series of original paintings for Paul Gervais' 'Les Trois Règnes de la Nature: Règne Animal. Histoire naturelle des mammifères' (Paris, 1854-55). The animals were all painted by Werner, and the uncoloured backgrounds, in finely shaded pencil, were executed by Alexandre de Bar. The published plates were engraved on steel, and the animals alone were hand-coloured, leaving the backgrounds plain, as here. This print shows two Kangroos in their natural environment. Jean-Charles Werner (1798-1856) was a natural history artist and comparative anatomist for the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris, where he contributed some 350 paintings of animals on vellum for the famous Collection des vélins between the years 1826 and 1856. The Collection, initiated in 1631, contained work by the finest natural history artists in France, including Nicolas Robert and Pierre-Joseph Redouté. Werner provided illustrations for the publication of Dumont d'Urville's expeditions to Australia and the South Pacific, and also worked with Cuvier, Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, and Henri Ducrotay de Blainville.
