Who is J. J. Audubon?
The beauty of birds is as magical as it is diverse. Wildlife artist John James Audubon, namesake of the National Audubon Society, dedicated his talents to painting and describing all of the bird species of America, eventually culminating in his seminal Birds of America: a collection of 435 life-size prints based off of his own illustrations. Painted en plein air, John Audubon’s bird prints have long been coveted for their exactness as well as their outstanding beauty.
