CLOSE-UP - John James Audubon's MANGROVE HUMMING BIRD - Trochilus mango, Birds of America, Havell Edition - Restored Print


MANGROVE HUMMING BIRD - Trochilus mango
Also formerly: MANGO HUMMINGBIRD.
Now: BLACK-THROATED MANGO - Anthracothorax nigricollis
 

It is no wonder that this image is very rarely encountered today - the original watercolour and all surviving prints exhibit an extraordinary level of degradation in all the colours (see below), unusual for any print of this period let alone one from Havell's workshop. It is probable that in order to achieve the colours of this particularly bright bird, unstable metallic pigments were used without regard to their long term stability. Audubon's descriptive notes confirm that the original image colours were as now seen in this superbly restored image.
