Audubon’s Birds of America: Accuracy vs. Aesthetics?

Join us as we take a closer look at J J Audubon's Birds of America, the most famous illustrated bird book in the world.

John James Audubon was the creator of the most famous, iconic and expensive illustrated bird book in the world, the Birds of America. To some the birds are ‘alive’, to others they are twisted into unnatural positions. Just how far did Audubon extend his artistic licence and did it compromise the accuracy of the illustrations? Join Museum Bird Curator and professional artist Katrina Cook as we take a closer look at the man and his work and begin to piece together Audubon’s true intentions.
