John James Audubon
Audubon's Fifty Best Watercolors, circa 2006
Plate: 6 Wild Turkey, female
25 1/2 x 38 3/4 inches
Painted by John James Audubon in stages beginning in 1820 during a trip up the Mississippi river. Audubon first rendered the hen in pastel. He added the brood of chicks later using watercolors and then finally completed the background of vegetation in oil paints.
Not since 1820 has this collection of Audubons original work been made availible to individual collectors as full-sized fine art facsimiles.
