Jean Théodore Descourtilz

Jean Théodore Descourtilz (c.1796- d,1855) was a French doctor, artist, ornithologist and the son of a medical botanist, Michel Étienne Descourtilz, for whose Flore pittoresque et medicale des Antilles…(1821-1829) Jean drew the 600 beautiful colored plates. Jean was more ornithologist than botanist but one of the
signal characteristic of his pictures is the beautiful and correct foliage in which he places his birds. He produced three rare bird books dealing with the avifauna of the Brazilian jungle of which he had first-hand field and museum experience. Our publication from which we have used was the first and most beautiful.
