The Pictorial Cyclopedia of Nature illustrated by Albert H. Winkler

I can’t seem to find out anything about the artist who made these illustrations. They are signed A.H. Winkler for Albert H. Winkler and were found in the back of a dictionary dating from 1971. They seem to be older than that though, just from their style. I especially like the title page, which is the last one on this post. Imagine flipping through a big dictionary, with only black and white pages, and coming to these at the end.  I was transported to the natural world! If you know anything about this artist, I’d love to hear from you.

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My passions are cuisine, wine, horticulture, art, and my two grown children who couldn't be farther away, and couldn't be any more wonderful than they are. I moved here in 2014, work a day job in finance, and spend the rest of my time working on my dream of living off the land, and teaching young people how to as well. Stop by my Etsy shops, where all proceeds are going towards the goal. Thank you and Namaste!

    My great grandfather was named Albert and hist painting style was almost identical as this. I’m curious as to whether these are some more of his works or not.

      I am in contact with the artist’s granddaughter if you want me to get the two of you in touch. She just emailed me today. She bought some of his works on Ebay. I love his style.
