John Woodhouse Audubon

John Woodhouse Audubon was the second son of the famed ornithologist and painter, John James Audubon. Like his father, he was primarily a painter of wildlife, but also did some portraits and genre scenes of the westward migration. After Audubon Sr. gained fame for “The Birds of America”, he and his son set on a journey to create this epic set of illustrations. Together, they produced 150 hand-drawn illustrations of viviparous animals found in North America. J.T. Bowen assisted them with hand-coloring and hand-printing illustrations of these impressive native animals.
