About this Item

Ernst Friedrich Carl Lang (1748-1782); One of eleven exceptionally rare fine gouache on vellum ornithological paintings ; 3rd-quarter 18th-century; 11 3/8 x 8 2/8 Inches; framed. Provenance: Acquired on his travels by John William Adam (1779-1825), administrator in India, and grandson of the celebrated British architect John Adam (1721-1792). Ernst Friedrich Carl Lang was the son of Kilian Lang, miniature painter and harpist. He moved to Nuremburg in 1755, studied as a pupil of the miniaturist Barbara Regina Dietzsch (1706-1783), and achieved renown for his exquisite paintings of natural history subjects, principally birds and flowers. Examples of his work are held by three European museums: The Staatsbibliothek Bamberg, The Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge and the Germanisches Nationalmuseum, Nuremburg.
