Not a parrot but a bird of paradise. Nevertheless, the curator of this collection (me) decided this print, printed on heavy wove paper  by this forgotten artist deserved to be in the company of  the other birds in the parrot collection. Brauer was born in Leipzig, known also as an illustrator and sculptor and probably immigrated (after WW-II?) to New-Zealand.  The artist bequested several of his works to the Te Papa Tongarewa Museum of New Zealand in 1965.


Below some more small sized etched examples in this collection by this artist.
