Abstract:

All aspects of Audubon's genius come together in one definitive, sumptuous volume. Acquired in 1863 from Audubon's widow, all of the original watercolors for Audubon's masterpiece, in addition to other little-known and never before-published outstanding pieces, have been selected from the New York Historical Society's extensive collection. Recently conserved and newly photographed with painstaking care, these rarely seen works are reproduced here to reveal the original, brilliant colors. The text has been contributed by some of America's foremost art historians, conservators, and Audubon's life and art to the New York Historical Society's technical studios of the watercolors are explored in a series of erudite yet accessible essays, while the book's full-page plates are thoroughly detailed with engaging and informative entries. Art lovers, historians, and naturalists as well as the general public will appreciate this unique volume.
