Barraband J. 1801-1806

Jacques Barraband (1767-1809), a superlative bird artist, had worked in various environments: in the Gobelin tapestry works and at the Sèvres porcelain factory. His most important work was a set of approximately 300 drawings for the scientist François Levaillant's three ornithological monographs, including the Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux de Paradis.

Barraband's drawings for the Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux de Paradis' placed him at the forefront of French ornithological artists at the beginning of the nineteenth century. He combines the artistic ability of a high order with good taste and a rare aesthetic sense.(Dance, The Art of Natural History).
