The Taylor White Collection

The watercolour painting of the Wren comes from the 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 Wren 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 Wren 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 Eurasian Wren

The Eurasian Wren (Scientific name: Troglodytes troglodytes) is a small bird, which is found across Europe, central and northeastern Asia, as well as North America. The Wren is the most common bird that breeds in the UK, despite their population being hit hard during cold winters.

With their tiny size, wrens nest in cracks in walls, bushes, holes in trees and even on the ground, building dome-shaped nests from moss and twigs - hence their scientific name of Troglodytes troglodytes. The Wren's plumage is brown in colour and it is easily identified by its small size and the distinct cocked tail. Wrens are also known as exquisite singers, capable of singing two notes at the same time. They will usually be amongst the first of the dawn chorus to strike up their song.

Production & Delivery

From the point of order, the production of your pack of Wren cards will take 2-3 working days. It will then be despatched to you, arriving approximately 24-48 hours later.
