Biographies

A natural history artist, born in Paris 1781. She specialised in painting birds and illustrated many ornithological publications. While she never visited Australia her books feature illustrations of a number of Australian birds and her work is held in the National Library of Australia.

natural history artist, was born in Paris on 26 July 1781 and died there on 18 April 1851. A student of P.P.

The life of the small, dainty and quiet Pauline was thoroughly disorganised by the hale and hearty robust fellow, whom she soon sent off with a pension to travel and paint in Italy. The couple had one daughter, the painter Henriette Ronner (1821-1909) who later specialised in painting cats.

There is but one portrait of her, done by her husband in chalk during the last months of her pregnancy (Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris). De Courcelles’s earliest work was on American birds. Later she made a special study of pigeons for books by the Dutch ornithologist C.J. ...
