In 1886, Ornithologist Robert Ridgway sought to standardise and catalogue the various shades and tints of colours named in the descriptions of birds for professional and amateur naturalists. Several decades after he published his first book, Ridgway went on to create another volume, covering more than a thousand colours. His work continues to bring value to naturalists and artists who, a century later, still use his work as a standard reference. Our designers used Ridgway's impressive display of colour swatches to curate this stunning fine art print.
