Gould Tropical Birds

The Gould tropical bird print collection available from Pink Flamingos includes: New Hebrides Parakeets, Beautiful Parakeets, Earl of Derby Parakeet (top); South American Macaw, Pennant's Parakeets, Yellow Rump Parakeets (bottom). Each of these prints measure about 10" wide by 12" tall and are printed on heavy paper (printed by Goes Lithographing circa 1940-1960).

John Gould was born on September 14, 1804, in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England. His passion for birds developed at a young age, and he began working as a taxidermist and natural history dealer. It was during this time that he honed his artistic skills in depicting birds. Elizabeth Coxen, born in 1804, married John in 1829. A talented artist herself, she shared his love for natural history and quickly became an integral part of his work.

John and Elizabeth's collaboration was extraordinary. John was an excellent observer of birds, and Elizabeth was a skilled artist. Her precise illustrations brought John's observations to life, making their synergistic work highly regarded in scientific circles. Together, they produced numerous illustrated volumes on birds, many of which are considered classics today.
