EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite hand-colored steel engraving, titled "Blue-headed Fantail (Rhipidura cyaniceps) with Peony (Paeonia suffruticosa)" is an enchanting illustration from the "Dictionnaire Pittoresque d'Histoire Naturelle" (Picturesque Dictionary of Natural History) by Felix-Edouard Guerin-Meneville, published in Paris between 1834 and 1839. The illustration features a Blue-headed Fantail, scientifically known as Rhipidura cyaniceps, perched gracefully on a branch. The Blue-headed Fantail is a small bird native to the Pacific Islands, known for its distinctive blue head and long, graduated tail feathers. The bird is depicted in intricate detail, with each feather and contour beautifully rendered. In the background, a lush peony bush (Paeonia suffruticosa) blooms, its vibrant pink petals contrasting elegantly with the bird's blue plumage. Peonies are flowering plants in the family Rosaceae, known for their large, showy flowers. The illustration is further enhanced by the delicate hand-coloring, adding depth and vibrancy to the image. The engraving was created by the skilled hand of M. du Casse, a renowned engraver of the time. The meticulous attention to detail and the harmonious composition of the image make it a true masterpiece of ornithological and botanical illustration. This print serves as a testament to the beauty and diversity of the natural world and the artistry of the 19th century.
