Albino Anomalies Monstrosities Albatros

23"x19" (58x48cm) Premium Frame

FSC real wood frame with double mounted 16x12 print. Double mounted with white conservation mountboard. Frame moulding comprises stained composite natural wood veneers (Finger Jointed Pine) 39mm wide by 21mm thick. Archival quality Fujifilm CA photo paper mounted onto 1mm card. Overall outside dimensions are 23x19 inches (584x482mm). Rear features Framing tape to cover staples, 50mm Hanger plate, cork bumpers. Glazed with durable thick 2mm Acrylic to provide a virtually unbreakable glass-like finish. Acrylic Glass is far safer, more flexible and much lighter than typical mineral glass. Moreover, its higher translucency makes it a perfect carrier for photo prints. Acrylic allows a little more light to penetrate the surface than conventional glass and absorbs UV rays so that the image and the picture quality doesn't suffer under direct sunlight even after many years. Easily cleaned with a damp cloth. Please note that, to prevent the paper falling through the mount window and to prevent cropping of the original artwork, the visible print may be slightly smaller to allow the paper to be securely attached to the mount without any white edging showing and to match the aspect ratio of the original artwork.

This coloured engraving, titled "Albatros, 1833-39" showcases the exquisite artistry of the French School in the 19th century. The print, part of a private collection, is an illustration from "A Dictionnaire pittoresque d'histoire naturelle et des phénomènes de la nature" published by Felix Edouard Guérin-Méneville between 1833 and 1839. The artwork depicts an Albatross, specifically an Albino specimen belonging to the Diomedea species. This unique portrayal highlights both its beauty and rarity within the avian world. The delicate details captured through this Stahlstich technique truly bring this magnificent creature to life. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, this engraving also holds significance in medical and scientific realms. It serves as a visual representation of anomalies and monstrosities found in animals—a subject that fascinated scholars during that era. Its inclusion in a comprehensive dictionary on natural history further emphasizes its educational value. Preserved by ePurix Verlag Volker Christen today, this historic piece remains out of copyright—allowing enthusiasts worldwide to appreciate its artistic mastery freely. Bridgeman Images has made it accessible for all to admire without commercial restrictions. As we gaze upon this remarkable image, we are reminded of humanity's enduring fascination with nature's wonders and our relentless pursuit to understand them better through art and science alike.
