Reproduced from the original painting by Sir Harry Johnston, pg 660, Annual Report of the Smithsonian Institution 1901. Washington, 1902.

Explorer and colonial administrator Sir Harry Johnston painted this picture of okapi for a 1901 edition of the Proceedings of the Zoological Society in London. When the species was first described that year, it was named Okapia johnstoni after Johnston.
