John James Audubon
(1785 – 1851) is perhaps the most renowned wildlife artist in America, universally acknowledged by both art and natural history museums. Noted for his expansive studies documenting American birds and for his detailed illustrations that depicted the birds in their natural habitat. The prints in this exhibit are from his first monumental publication, Birds of America (1828 – 1838) and his second major publication Viviparous Quadrupeds oif North America (1845 -1848). This exhibit is located in the Wapiti Gallery.
