The Taylor White Collection's 18th Century Watercolour Painting of The Red & Blue Macaw

Our Red & Blue Macaw 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 Red & Blue Macaw was one of these masterpieces, which emerged from the collaboration between White and Collins.

The original watercolour of the Red & Blue Macaw is extremely finely painted, with incredible detail, allowing you to see the Red & Blue Macaw'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 Red & Blue Macaw

The Red and Blue Macaw (Scientific name: Ara chloroptera) is a magnificent bird that stands out as the largest member of the Ara genus. These captivating creatures are native to the lush forests and woodlands of northern and central South America, specifically across Brazil, Bolivia, and Paraguay. While their original moniker, "Red & Blue Macaw," was coined by Taylor White during his captioning of a stunning watercolor painting he had commissioned, they are now more commonly referred to as the Red and Green Macaw. This name change stems from the fact that these birds display vibrant red and green feathers, alongside their striking blue plumage.

The Red and Blue Macaw is not only known for its vivid colors but also for its impressive size. These avian marvels can grow up to 90 cm (35 inches) in length, with wingspans reaching up to 125 cm (49 inches). They are known to live for more than 50 years in the wild, making them an enduring presence in their habitat. In addition to their size and longevity, these macaws are renowned for their intelligence and social nature. They form strong bonds with their mates and often gather in large, noisy flocks, displaying their acrobatic skills and chatty behavior.
