This strong color chromolithograph is from Johann Andreas Naumann’s Naturgeschichte der Vogel Mitteleuropas or Natural History of Central European Birds. The work was published by Fr. Eugen Kohler in Gera-Untermhaus between 1897 and 1905.
It was a monumental work on European birds masterfully combining ornithology and fine artisty. Many artists contrubited to the work including John Gerard Keulemans, Gring, Geisler, de Maes, von Riesenthal, and Kleinschmidt.
