This beautiful chromolithographic print is from the first edition of the Argentian artist Axel Amuchastegui's work, Love Life of the Birds and was made in 1952. It is in excellent condition on fine white rag paper with strong plate marks. Each print is signed in the plate by the artist. It is excellent value considering its beauty, size, condition and rarity.
Axel was was born in 1921 in Cordoba, Argentina, and was a self taught artist. He loved the beauty of the natural environment in which he grew up, raised by his grandmother and parents to have a love of the creatures of the wild. He developed a unique technique for his paintings using Chinese inks and watercolors. There is now a tremendous appreciation for Axel Amchastegui's work and he is considered one of the great ornithology illustrators of the 20th century. Argentina has designed several postage stamps from his paintings. As this print is over 50 years old we classify it as a vintage print. Most of the prints on our web site are over 100 years old (antique) but we decided to offer these rare lithographs because of their exceptional beauty and rarity.
