The Taylor White Collection

The watercolour painting of the Blue & Yellow Macaw comes from the collection of Taylor White F.R.S. (1701-1772). In the mid-18th Century, White commissioned the celebrated wildlife painter, Peter Paillou (c.1720 - c.1790) to paint a number of specimens for his collection. The Blue & Yellow Macaw was one of the watercolour paintings, which resulted from the collaboration between White and Paillou.

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 & Yellow Macaw 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 & Yellow Macaw

The Blue & Yellow Macaw (Scientific name: Ara aracauna) is native to Central and South America. The Blue & Yellow Macaw is often seen by people to be the archetypal "parrot" with its feathers of vivid blues, yellows and oranges. It is a bird, which is often kept as a house-pet or in an aviary in the Western World. The Blue & Yellow Macaw has the capability to learn to speak or mimic human voices and can live as long as 60-70 years, when well looked after in captivity.
