"Yellow Rump Parakeet" by John Gould stands as a vibrant depiction of avian grace, sized at 12" tall by 10" wide. This original offset lithograph from the 1940s is a rich piece of the Gould tropical bird print series, offered by Pink Flamingos. It shares the collection with "New Hebrides Parakeets," "Beautiful Parakeets," "Earl of Derby Parakeet," "South American Macaw," "Pennant's Parakeets," each printed on heavy paper by Goes Lithographing circa 1940-1960, and each measuring approximately 10" wide by 12" tall.

John Gould, an English ornithologist, and artist born on September 14, 1804, nurtured a lifelong devotion to birds. His work as a taxidermist and natural history dealer in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England, allowed him to refine his skill in avian portrayal. His marriage to Elizabeth Coxen in 1829 marked the beginning of a remarkable partnership. Elizabeth, a skilled artist, brought precision and life to John's observations through her illustrations. Their combined efforts produced many illustrated volumes on birds that remain revered for their artistic and scientific value.

The "Yellow Rump Parakeet" lithograph is not just a collector's item but a celebration of the Goulds' contribution to ornithology and art, offering a touch of historical elegance to any collection.
