John Keulemans was a well respected Dutch artist of the nineteenth century. Noted for his drawings and lithographs of birds - his paintings of NZ birds are the famous prints from the classic NZ book Buller's Birds.
Keulemans never visited New Zealand, but drew from stuffed birds and specimens provided by Buller. For each illustration he first produced a drawing for Buller’s inspection, then a coloured painting, which served as the basis for each lithograph.
