Etching with fine hand colour. 440 x 310mm (17¼ x 12¼"), on laid paper watermarked 'G R'.
A fine etching from Hayes's 'Rare and Curious Birds Accurately Drawn and Coloured from Their Specimens in the Menagerie at Osterly Park', first edition. Hayes (1735-1802), a self-taught artist who had illustrated 'A Natural History of British Birds' in 1775, was commissioned to record the collection of live birds belonging to Robert and Sarah Child, the owners of Osterley. It was a family affair: he employed at least seven of his children as etchers, colourists and binders. The volumes were assembled when they were ordered, with the contents varying because of what has been called 'a production line of unrivalled chaos'. A second, posthumous edition was issued in 1817, 'published for the benefit of his family'.
