Francois Nicholas Martinet Bird Engraving,
The framed Francois Martinet engraving is from Buffon's Historie Naturelle des Oiseaux displayed beautifully in a large frame. There are two birds depicted 1. Martin pecheur Madagascar, 2. Martin pecheur de Pondecherry.
Over the course of his illustrious career, François Nicolas Martinet (1731-1790?) engraved illustrations of birds for some of the most influential naturalists in 18th-century France, including François Salèrne, Mathurin Brisson, and, above all, Georges Louis Leclerc, le comte de Buffon.
This exceptional, hand-colored engraving is from Georges Louis Leclerc Comte de Buffon's work Histoire Naturelle des Oiseaux. The work was published in Paris from 1770 to 1786. Francois Nicolas Martinet provided all of the illustrations for the work.
