BACKGROUND of Georges Louis Leclerc, le Comte de Buffon and Francois Nicholas Martinet
The Comte de Buffon was a mathematician and scientist often thought of as the founding father of ornithology. His lifetime goal was to create images of most of the world’s birds in their natural environment.
His work prefigured the works of John James Audubon.
Under Louis XV, he was the head of the Royal Botanical Gardens.
Martinet was a French court artist and engraver whose work included illustrations of life at Versailles, theatrical studies, landscapes, and the bird engravings for which he is best known.
