Ranges from the early ornithological prints such as the famous illustrations from Buller's Birds by John Keulemans through to twentieth century designers who incorporated bird imagery in their artwork right through to contemporary artists whose paintings and prints of birds are more likely to place the birds in their natural environment. Birds are referenced in the work of painters such as Bill Hammond and printmaker Shane Hansen has just completed a beautiful series of original prints.
