The Taylor White Collection's 18th Century Watercolour Painting of The Turtle Dove

Our Turtle Dove 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, Peter Paillou (c.1720 - c.1790) to paint a number of specimens for his collection. The watercolour painting of the Turtle Dove was one of these masterpieces, which emerged from the collaboration between White and Paillou.

The original watercolour of the Turtle Dove is extremely finely painted, with incredible detail, allowing you to see the Turtle Dove'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 Oriental Turtle Dove (Scientific name: Streptopelai orientalis) is an avian marvel that has captured hearts and inspired awe across Asia. The Oriental Turtle Dove is a charming and graceful species of dove, whose range spans from the western edges of Europe all the way to the eastern shores of Japan.
