The Taylor White Collection's 18th Century Watercolour Painting of The Guinea Fowl

Our Guinea Fowl fine art print comes from the original 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 watercolour painting of the Guinea Fowl was one of these masterpieces, which emerged from the collaboration between White and Collins.

The original watercolour of the Guinea Fowl is extremely finely painted, with incredible detail, allowing you to see the Guinea Fowl's plumage and features in stunning clarity. This depth of colour and detail has been captured brilliantly through the digitalisation process and is replicated for you on this delightful fine art print, which is now available for your home or office décor, or to buy as a thoughtful gift for your friends and family.

Taylor White, a barrister by profession and landowner on the Nottinghamshire / Yorkshire border, 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 governor and the founding Treasurer of The Foundling Hospital in London, as well as being a Fellow of The Royal Society. He was extremely well-connected in Society, which enabled him to create such a world-class collections of specimen and thus paintings. White's father in-law was Major-General John Armstrong, who as Surveyor-General of the Ordnance, Chief Royal Engineer and Quartermaster-General to the Forces, has his offices in The Tower of London. Consequently, Taylor White had access to the birds and beasts of The Royal Menagerie at the Tower. He also was able to borrow specimen from The British Museum. Some rarer and more exotic specimens were brought back from their great travels across the globe by his Royal Society friends, the naturalist Sir Joseph Banks, Bt. and the famous clockmaker, John Harrison.

The Guinea Fowl

The Guinea Fowl (Scientific name: Numida meleagris) is an unmistakable bird native to Africa that has found its way into global habitats through domestication. Its distinguishing features include a speckled grey body, small head, and a unique helmet-like structure on its head, with each bird boasting a unique pattern. Ranging in length from 40-71 cm and weighing between 1.25 and 1.75 kg, Guinea Fowl have strong beaks and legs, making them suited to a terrestrial lifestyle.

Originally from sub-Saharan Africa, these adaptable birds now thrive in varied environments globally, including forests, savannas, and suburban areas. Interestingly, they're adept at pest control, consuming large quantities of ticks, worms, and other pests, contributing to a balanced ecosystem. Guinea Fowl are social creatures, living in flocks known as a "confusion", and communicate via a range of loud calls.

Guinea Fowl are monogamous birds that mate for life. The breeding season sees them laying between 25-30 eggs, which are incubated for approximately 26-28 days. Their chicks, or "keets," are precocial and can fend for themselves shortly after hatching. In the wild, Guinea Fowl can live up to 12 years, but domesticated birds can reach 10-15 years with proper care. Intriguingly, Guinea Fowl mothers are known to adopt chicks from other bird species. The fascinating characteristics and behaviors of the Guinea Fowl make it an integral part of our ecosystems and a valuable addition to our farmyards.
