As a gifted young artist, Edward Lear worked as an ornithological draftsman for the Zoological Society of London and later for the Earl of Derby, who kept a private menagerie at his estate, Knowsley Hall. During his lifetime, he was compared to John James Audubon, but his career as a natural history illustrator was cut short by deteriorating vision. He went on to become a landscape painter and world traveler, as well a musician, author and poet. He was an early popularizer of the limerick who wrote nonsense poems akin to those of Lewis Carroll and Dr. Seuss.
