Some appeared after his death until Mathews, Birds of Australia ; he had rendered the images on stone well before publication of these works. A calculation of his total output gives about 4,, published illustrations. While the subject of his illustrations was almost entirely avian, he was also commissioned to create portraits of mammals, insects, and shells. Most of the illustrations by Keulemans were produced through traditional lithography, allowing for a finished product that depicts a vivid, lifelike figure through depth and tone. Printing was carried out by the two firms of Mintern and Hanhart, and early in his career, some were printed by P.

Often, the published lithographs were not coloured, and perhaps some Journal of the Linnean Society , were not intended to be coloured. The technique of lithography made it necessary for the print to be coloured by hand. This was done by semi-skilled artisans working in an assembly line in a manner similar to stencilling. If the depicted colours did not match those of the birds, the value of the finished product was diminished. Keulemans painted remarkable pictures of extinct birds, including Walter Rothschild 's Avifauna of Laysan, Extinct Birds The only work that was not only illustrated but also written by Keulemans, was Onze vogels in huis en tuin Our birds in home and garden.

It was a three volume work in Dutch that appeared between and In this work Keulemans does write about a number of native birds, but he also describes and paints a number of cagebirds and aviary birds. Keulemans is famous for his illustrations, but in this book he shows that he is a very able observer of birds in the field as well. In vol. According to the authors of Keulemans' biography Feathers to Brush , the artist's interest in spiritualism began with a premonition of his son Isidore's death.

In an article in the Bristol Mercury and Daily Post of March 3, , Keulemans tells how he and his family were living in Paris in December when there was an outbreak of smallpox. The parents sent three of their children to London to live with their grandparents; one of the children was his favorite son Isidore, aged four. In the morning of 24 January , Keulemans woke up and heard Isidore's voice and saw his face. The apparition returned the next day, which made Keulemans very uneasy. A few days later he received a letter from London to tell him Isidore was ill, when in fact he had died exactly on the day of the first appearance of Isidore in John Gerrard's dream.

Subsequently, Keulemans experienced further incidents increasing his belief in the supernatural, in particular which he claimed could be awakened via the painting of a bird's eye. Keulemans began an association with the Society for Psychical Research ; later he became disenchanted with the prevalence of fraud in spiritualist society, and used his scientific training to expose the trickery he saw performed by mediums. Keulemans claimed to have visited nearly seances and gave some examples of the alleged trickery in support of his criticisms. He seems not to have been opposed to Spiritualism in its philosophical or metaphysical bases, but against its pretensions as a science based on demonstrable fact.
