Fine feathers make fine birds?

I stumbled upon a painting by the Dutch painter Aart Schouman (1710-1792).
In this article I examine the birds in his composotion and their occurrence during the 18th century. Furthermore, I examine to what extent Schouman succeeded at portraying the species in a natural way.

Link to article:
Schouman the naturalist: Fine feathers make fine birds?
Examining a painted canvas from a biological point of view.

Unfortunately, I was not able to access
Bol, A.J. (1991).Aart Schouman. Ingenious painter and draughtsman. Doornspijk: Davaco.
This work is likely to reveal more information.

  1. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting
    article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me.
    In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the web will be much more useful than ever before.
