The Taylor White Collection

The watercolour painting of the Blue Tits comes from the collection of Taylor White F.R.S. (1701-1772). In the mid-18th Century, White commissioned the celebrated wildlife painter, Charles Collins (c.1680 - 1744) to paint a number of specimens for his collection. The Blue Tits was one of the watercolour paintings, which resulted from the collaboration between White and Collins.

Taylor White, a barrister by profession, was a keen naturalist and collector. He commissioned over 900 paintings of birds, mammals, reptiles and fish from the finest painters of his day. He was a Fellow of The Royal Society and founding Treasurer of The Foundling Hospital in London.

The original watercolour of the Blue Tits is extremely finely painted, with great detail being seen in all of the details of the painting. This depth of colour and detail has been captured brilliantly through the digitalisation process and is replicated for you on this delightful journal.

The Blue Tit (Blue Titmouse)

The Blue Titmouse - generally known as the Blue Tit (Scientific name: Parus coeruleus obscurus) lives across Europe and the western-north African coast. Blue tits are not migratory and tend to live in the regions they are born.

The Blue Tit is one of the best-known and best-loved British garden birds, along with the Robin and Blackbird. They are easily identifiable from their feathered coat of brilliant blues and yellows, as well as their distinctive behaviour. A much loved bird in city or country gardens!
