About the Poster: Jacques Barraband (or Pierre-Paul Barraband) was a French zoological and botanical illustrator, renowned for his lifelike renderings of tropical birds. His pictures were based on mounted specimens and his illustration was considered the most accurate ones made during the early 1800s. His works were so well-respected that Napoleon I hired Barraband to decorate the banquet hall at St. Cloud.
We've had this 1960s re-issue of Barraband's work, printed by the well-respected firm of L'Imprimerie de Langlois, professionally double-matted. Ready to frame.
Fabulous colours, great detail and a fantastic rendering of a beautiful bird. Rare.
