Vintage Natural History Poster (Insects, Birds, and Butterflies)

You probably recognise these natural history posters as they are very popular and have been sold as gift wrap and prints. They were painted by the French painter and entomologist Adolphe Millot in the late 19th and early 20th Century.

These gorgeous natural history paintings were for the book the Nouveau Larousse Illustré a French encyclopedia first published in 1905. I have included here the identification posters Millot painted for insects, birds, and butterflies.
