Part of a larger collection of bird prints, consisting of (chromo) lithographs from the following books (series): Naumann's Naturgeschichte der Vögel Mitteleurpas (1897 – 1905), Onze vogels in huis en tuin (1869 – 1876), and A History of Birds (1872). Many of the lithographs can be found in all sorts of other issues. The most well-known artists of these prints were John Gerrard (Johan Gerard) Keulemans, Bruno Geisler, E. de Maes (no biographical data), and O. Kleinschmidt.
Keulemans was an avid lover of nature as a boy and wanted to be a researcher. At the age of 19, he offered his services as a collector of prepared birds and their eggs to the national museum of natural history in Leiden (RMNH, now Naturalis). In 1864, he was appointed illustrator/assistant. Hermann Schlegel, who was director of the RMNH at the time, stimulated him and sent him on an expedition to West Africa in 1864. Upon his return to Europe in 1866, Schlegel provided a recommendation to the British Museum for him. In 1867 Richard Bowdler Sharpe (the later curator of birds of the British Museum) visited the RMNH and invited Keulemans to work with him for the illustration of his monograph about kingfishers.
In 1867, he married Engelina Johanna Spoor in Voorschoten, and she helped him with his work. At the end of 1869, the couple moved to Great Britain. Within a short time, he became one of the most requested bird illustrators of his time. 
He worked as an in-house illustrator for the ornithological journal The Ibis of the British Ornithologists' Union, the Novitates Zoologicae for the Tring Museum and for the periodicals, Proceedings and Transactions of the Zoological Society of London.  Thanks to his studies of the Sunbirds in West Africa, he, along with other talented artists, was allowed to illustrate the book Monograph of the Nectarinidae by George Ernest Shelley (1840-1910).
After the death of his first wife in 1876, he married the Irish Arabella Miley in 1877 in London. He was father to a total of 14 children, of which 9 reached adulthood. Keulemans was fluent in five languages and was a good cellist. In later years, he devoted himself to spiritualism.
