An Australian Eleven. Mounted and framed (68cm by 40cm).
Separately published chromolithograph. Oblong format with eleven Australian birds (nine parrots) posed on a branch.
"Harry" Bright (1847-1896) was a succesful English natural history watercolourist. His father (1824-1876) was of the same name and also a natural history painter. An Australian Eleven and its companion An English Team is a well composed, well executed work and one of the very few seperately issued lithographs of Australian birds published in the nineteenth century.
