Stunning illustration of a red and white fish named Hawken’s fish. The artist was a noted ichthyologist of the 18th century and as this fine example shows, his work looks more like photographs than illustrations. This fine fish image is copyright free and can be used in your next creative work. This was one of many fish drawings that appeared in Ichtylogie, ou Histoire naturelle, génerale et particuliére des poissons by Marcus Elieser Bloch (1723 – 1799).
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
