Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

The Spix Macaw, Cyanopsittacus spixi, by Karl Plath and published in the April 1931 edition of Aviculture, the journal of The Avicultural Society in London, England [larger view].

A reader is wondering where this painting of a Spix’s Macaw is located; does anyone know?

    Have you tried the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago (formerly the New Chicago Zoological Park) where Plath was curator of birds until 1961? (Although I wouldn’t be surprised if it is actually in the British Museum)
