On this page we feature a new selection of British Bird prints based on paintings by Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935), one of the most respected ornithological artists in Britain in the late 1800s and early 1900s.   The prints shown here include a selection of Water Fowl, Birds of Prey and Songbirds from the First Edition of his series British Birds published in 1915.

Scottish-born, Thorburn was an acute observer of nature and his style of watercolor painting actively portrays the subjects in their natural habitat.  He learned many of his painting techniques from his father, Robert Thorburn, a miniaturist to Queen Victoria.

Each Bird print is accompanied by the text pages, also authored by Thorburn, describing the species of birds portrayed.
