Edward Lear (1812-1888) was an English artist, illustrator, musician, author and poet, and is known for his literary nonsense in poetry and prose.
At the beginning of his career, Lear worked as a natural history illustrator and ornithological artist making coloured drawings during his journeys, which he reworked later, sometimes as plates for his travel books. During this period, he created some of the most extraordinary images of birds ever made.
We provide an extensive range of mouldings so please contact us for alternative framing options.
Lear birds are also available unframed.
N.B. Colouring is hand rendered and therefore may be subject to variation.
