Audubon: Birds, Pop-Up Cards

About the Artist

John James Audubon (1785–1851) was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter known for his expansive studies to document and illustrate all types of American birds. His major work, a colorplate book titled The Birds of America (1827–1839), is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed. Accustomed to seeing specimens shown simply, against a blank background, some naturalists objected to Audubon's use of dramatic poses and settings. Yet his attempt to positionbirds as he thought they moved in the wild, using wire armatures to support the freshly killed subjects, was truly revolutionary. Today the Birds of America engravings, and the brilliant watercolors upon which they are based, are admired not only for their ornithological exactness, but also for their vitality and keen sense of design.
