[Blue-Fronted Amazon] La Perruche à front jaune, mâle
Paris, 1801. Colour-printed engraving with hand-colouring. Printed by Langlois. This handsome portrait depicts the Blue-Fronted Amazon, one of the most popular and intelligent parrots.Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the greatest of which was the Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (1801-1805).
