The Hummingbirds

The Hummingbirds

 Gould’s collaborator on the text of this project was Richard Bowdler Sharpe, the curator of birds at the British Museum, and a friend of Gould’s since he had met Sharpe as a boy collecting birds along the river Thames. Sharpe enlisted the talented artist William Hart to create original watercolors for these volumes, a collaboration that was the first of many. Gould's Hummingbirds represents a splendid triumph of aesthetic sensitivity and scientific rigor. 
Of all his works, many of Gould's best-known images come from this beautiful and comprehensive monograph on hummingbirds.Most images show at least one subject in flight to accentuate the coloring of their feathers. The compositions generally show the birds in animated groupings of two or three, surrounded by foliage and landscapes. All of the hummingbirds are drawn to scale and are anatomically correct to the smallest detail.
