This exquisite hand-colored moth engraving is a true work of art created by the renowned French entomologist Pierre Andre Latreille in 1794. Latreille was a pioneer in the field of entomology and is widely regarded as one of the most important figures in the history of insect classification.

The engraving itself is a masterpiece of craftsmanship, with intricate details and vibrant colors that bring each moth to life. Each moth is depicted in stunning detail, with delicate wing perfectly rendered and the body and antennae carefully depicted. The coloring is particularly striking, with a range of warm oranges and yellows set against a dark background that makes the butterfly seem to leap off the page.

Latreille was known for his attention to detail and his scientific accuracy, and this engraving is no exception. Every aspect of the moth's anatomy is perfectly represented, from the scales on its wings to the tiny hairs on its legs. The engraving is also carefully labeled, with the scientific name of the moth included in Latin script.

Overall, this hand-colored moth engraving by Pierre Andre Latreille is a true masterpiece of natural history illustration. It is a testament to Latreille's skill as both an entomologist and an artist, and a rare and valuable artifact that offers a glimpse into the beauty and complexity of the natural world.
