Migratory Birds on a Moonlit Night

Theodorus van Hoytema Dutch

Not on view

Van Hoytema was one of the important graphic designers in Holland during the late nineteenth-early twentieth century. He was best known for his images of the natural world, in particular birds. His popularity was principally due to his children’s books – the Met has one of these in the collection (1970.685.3) - and his calendars. The present lithograph was produced as the calendar page for the month of November in his calendar for 1907. The Met also has an impression of the calendar page (2017.258).
