About the artist
About the artwork
This piece is an excellent example of the work that Jakob Bogdány was prized for in the early 1700s. The Admiral George Churchill had a famous aviary, which he devoted himself to after his retirement from service. As Bogdány’s patron, he granted the painter access to this aviary and encouraged him to produce paintings of the exotic birds he kept there. This practice made Bogdány his fortune, and this collection of paintings was greatly admired. Here Bogdány depicts several highly exotic birds, including a peacock and hen, red and blue macaws, and a cockatoo alongside familiar British wild birds, such as a blue tit and a jay.

Tate is pleased to offer custom prints of this artwork for the duration of the British Baroque: Power and Illusion exhibition at Tate Britain, 4 February – 19 April 2020. Due to the nature of the original artwork, we are only able to offer custom prints in size options up to 60 x 45 cm.

About the artist
Jakob Bogdány (1658 - 1724) was a Hungarian and British artist, who is best known for his still life and exotic bird paintings. He worked mainly in the Netherlands and England, where he became part of the court of Queen Anne, painting still lifes and birds. His interest in painting exotic birds was encouraged by his patron Admiral George Churchill, who gave him access to his famous Windsor Park aviary around 1703. This allowed Bodany to become the leading painter of this genre, and made him much in demand with the aristocracy. His success allowed him to buy a home in Finchley, North London, where he died in 1724.
