22.5 by 18.3 cms (9.5 by 7.4 inches) Offered here is a painting of a hummingbird. It's painted in watercolour with gold heightening and on Whatman paper with a watermark date of 1831. It's unlettered and has a contempory caption in pencil reading Rough Legged Racket Tailed Hummingbird. The image appears in the volume on Humming | BIrds in the Jardine Naturalist's Library series with the title Trochius underwoodi and it's probably the original painting for the print. Note that the engraved print has background lines not present here and there are other minor differences. It's in fine condition, the colours fresh and unfaded..
