Joseph Wolf is widely accepted as one of the most accomplished bird artists during the 19th century.  He introduced a more realistic view of nature to Victorian society through his wildlife painting.  Here, we offer two of his pheasant prints.  Named for British naturalist John Reeves, the Reeves's Pheasant is native to evergreen forests of central and eastern China .  Loss of habitat and over hunting has made them extremely rare in the wild. Incredibly, the Reeves's Pheasant's tail can be as long as eight feet.  Lady Amherst's Pheasant, native to south China , Tibet and Burma was first brought to England by Lord Amherst for his wife, and the pheasant's namesake, Sarah Countess Amherst.  We present a pair of pheasant prints displayed in a polished burlwood veneer frame, printed on archival paper, matted, and edged with gold French lines around a marbleized paper border reflecting the gorgeous colors of the feathers.  Overall size is 24" high x 29" wide each.  Made in the USA.
