Pelican Fine Art Print
The Taylor White Collection
The watercolour painting of the Pelican comes from the collection of Taylor White F.R.S. (1701-1772), which is currently in the Blacker-Wood Collection at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. 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 Pelican 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 Pelican 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 fine art print.
