There is something truly fascinating about Bird watching. The elegant sound of a bird chirping, and the beauty of seeing a bird fly without rules, or limitations seems to almost suspend time. John James Audubon was an Ornithologist, conservationist, an intellectual, and an artist. He came to America early in his life, and was married in 1808.
His passion for drawing and studying birds became his whole world. For a short period of time he taught others how to draw in New Orleans. Later in life, he traveled to Great Britain where he sought out a publisher for his bird drawings. He made connections in the scientific world as well as the art world and showed that blending the two did not always prove to be scientifically accurate, but both art and science together created something wonderful.
Today his works are still being published, and he is one of the worlds most well known Ornithologists. To honor his legacy we have taken 30% off of our entire site! Explore our Audubon Collection Here: http://bit.ly/1hrZEHz
