Summary With this publication virtually the entire series of paintings created by John James Audubon for The Birds of America is reproduced for the first time in full color and with the accuracy made possible by modern photographic techniques. There is nothing in American art to which this large collection of Audubon's original work can be compared. No other artist of his time was so sensitively and intimately concerned with the natural wonders of the American scene. No single person before or since has contributed so much to the art of painting birds. - Introduction.
