John Gould

693 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #4895
Illustration   •   John Gould @ Wikipedia

His life completely devoted to nature and wildlife, had the Briton John Gould. That was almost in his cradle. His uncle, who grew up with him, was in charge of the Royal Gardens of Windsor.

Even as a teenager, he developed great interest in the history of nature. He also chased along the Thames birds, which he subsequently prepared. At the beginning of the 20th century, Gould opened a pet preparation business in London. During this time, he also began drawing studies of birds. In the late 1820s Gould was hired as curator by the Zoological Society in London. His first publication dates from 1830 and shows numerous birds from the Himalayan region. The work of the British was coined among other things by the naturalist Charles Darwin. He brought with him from his journey around the world numerous preparations of exotic animals. This included, among other things, the Darwin Finn. Darwin had discovered this in the Galapagos Islands. Gould studied the animal closely and found that it was a new, previously undiscovered finch.

Working with his wife, lithographer Elizabeth Coxen, Gould made drawings of all the birds Darwin had brought from his trip. These were then published in his book The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle. John Gould's best-known works include a work on birdlife in Australia. © Meisterdrucke
