SKU
WD9024407

18th Century Saverio Manetti hand-coloured duck engraving.

Presented in bespoke hand-painted and lacquered rope frame with hessian mount and Ar70 Artglass for optimal clarity. This print originates from ‘Storia naturale degli Uccelli’ by Saverio Manetti. The prints were drawn and etched by Violante Vanni and Lorenzo Lorenzi with the text penned by Saverio Manetti.

The work was published in Florence, Italy between 1767 and 1776 by F. Mouck, C. Cambiagi, and Giuseppe Vanni. Each engraving shows remarkable personality and detail, many of the birds often taking on an almost human personality type.

Manetti drew his work predominantly from real specimens. The work was one of the largest ornithology undertakings to that point in time.
