von Wright brothers (1805-1906)

Born in Haminalahti near Kuopio Finland into a Swedish-Finnish family of nine surviving siblings, the three artistic von Wright brothers were:

  • Magnus (1805-1868) – ornithologist known for his bird illustrations and landscapes,
  • Wilhelm (1810-1887) – painter and amateur naturalist, and
  • Ferdinand (1822-1906) – painter of landscapes, animals, still-lifes and portraits.

Begun in August 1828 and finished by 1838, their book Svenska Foglar contains 178 lithographs.
