Alexander Francis Lydon was a native Irishman and eldest of six siblings. His parents were a travel-loving couple and so Lydon spent his childhood in England. As the time came for the apprenticeship, Alexander Francis Lydon took the basics of printing theory. He learned the skill of wood-pressure and undertook first experiments in chromolithography, the technique of which he deepened.

First fame gained Lydon by copperplate engraving. He made illustrations for natural history books. His depictions of birds, fish and plants were based on the models of known naturalists. Lydon took a liking to the fine, slightly transparent depictions and adopted the watercolor. Thus, his work includes not only colored stitches and lithographs, but also watercolors that capture the special color play of nature. In addition to his workshop work with the naturalistic representations of flora and fauna, the representations of landscapes and mansions of the English landed gentry were added to his repertoire.

Among his most famous works undoubtedly include his book illustrations. The depictions of his bird pictures, especially the parrots, are unique. One of his best-known solo depictions is the colored version of Robinson Crusoe, which dramatically captivates the observer with its dark, turbulent seas. © Meisterdrucke
