Little is known about Giardini other than he lived during the mid 1700’s. His works were usually engraved by Bouillon, a famous French engraver. Giardini often combined botanical imagery with vases, which was unusual for the time period.

Gould, John

John Gould, the Bird Man, was the enterprising genius behind the creation of 2,999 different hand-colored lithographic plates of birds and animals. He was born on September 14, 1804, at Lyme Regis on the Dorset coast in England. As the son of a gardener, Gould had no formal university training. He considered himself a self-made man. Nevertheless his contributions to this science were so vast that in 1843 he was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. 

Gould married Elizabeth Coxen in 1827. Elizabeth travelled and worked with Gould until her death in 1841. Shortly after their marriage, Gould, who was a skilled taxidermist, acquired a collection of bird skins from the hill country of the Himalayas, many of them new to Europe. After he stuffed and mounted them, he realized their artistic possibilities, and his new life as bird illustrator began. Elizabeth helped to draw, lithograph and color many of his first plates. Over the next 57 years Gould published more than 40 large folio volumes. The first set appeared in 1831 and the last set in 1888, seven years after Gould’s death.
Scholars think that Gould himself did the original sketches for all of the plates. Other artists – Elizabeth Coxen, Edward Lear, Joseph Wolf, William Hart, and H.C. Richter- did most of the hand coloring and lithography. With the hummingbirds, which are naturally iridescent, gold or silver leaf was used under the watercolor to mirror their natural beauty. Richard Bowdler Sharp cooperated with Gould on his later works and supervised the completion of the works after Gould’s death in 1881. 

In his pursuit of new and different birds, John Gould traveled to Asia, Australia and the East Indies. His series of natural history plates is considered by many as the finest works of bird illustrations ever presented. His Hummingbirds along with his Toucans and his Birds of Paradise, are generally most in demand by collectors, but his other works are the same exquisite quality. The making of these prints was technically and artistically demanding. Gould’s original sketches were transferred to stone with special pencils or chalk. They were printed by hand from the stones. Each print was hand- colored, and issued in small sets to subscribers only. As the prints were very expensive for their time, only a few hundred of the wealthiest people and institutions could afford the, accounting for their rarity today.

Based on J.G.Heck’s Bilder Atlas zum Conversations Lexicon, published in Germany in the last century, the Iconographic Encyclopedia of Science, Literature, and Art was a monumental six-volume compilation of illustrations and information covering an enormous range of subjects. Among it’s most remarkable features were the more than 11,000 superb steel engravings, comprising one of the most extensive pictorial archives published in a single work.
One of three separate and independent volumes based on the rare original American edition of 1851, is devoted to military science, geography and history. Selections of ancient and modern maps were translated into English from an extensive glossary originally listed in German place names.


Hill, John

John Hill was a somewhat controversial figure in the history of botany in England. He received his initial training in a pharmacy then worked as a gardener and curator of dried plants. He soon abandoned this work to pursue acting and writing; writing on subjects from science to theology to naval history – he even wrote a few plays and novels. His most impressive achievement was a 26- volume work, The Vegetable System, for which he personally designed and etched 1,600 plates.
Eden: or, A Compleat Body of Gardening is arranged as a calendar; a week by week guide for the gardener for care of the flower- garden, kitchen-garden, and nursery. Illustrations of different plants, generally in flower, are provided, together with a description and a brief history of each. Usually six or seven different plants are shown together, realistically portrayed and artistically arranged on the page. Hill later received his medical degree and was given rank and title of an English Knight. He participated in the groundbreaking work that became the botanical gardens of Kew and he also worked as a gardener at Kensington Palace.


Hogarth, William


Search for products by this Artist >>

An English painter and engraver, William Hogarth, trained as an engraver in the Rococo tradition. By 1720 he was independently established in London as an engraver on copper of billheads and book illustrations. In his spare time he studied painting. By 1730, Hogarth had begun to make a name for him self with small conversation pieces and also set up as a portrait painter. He invented and popularized the use of sequential and anecdotal pictures ‘similar to representations on the stage’ that dealt with morals and satirized social abuses. Series such as A Harlot’s Progress (c.1731), A Rake’s Progress (c.1735) and Marriage a` la Mode (c.1743) portray the punishment of vice in a somewhat lurid melodrama. Each series was painted with the intent to be engraved. The engravings were widely popular and accepted among all classes.
Hogarth was far and away the most important British artist of his generation. Because so much of his work has a ‘literary’ element, his qualities as a painter have often been overlooked, although he was as equally outstanding as a painter as he was an engraver. *Adapted from The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Art and Artists
