Audubon’s Quadrupeds represent the most important body of Wildlife art of the 19th century.
Published between 1845 and 1848, the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America was a collaborative project between John James Audubon, his two sons, and the renowned naturalist Reverend John Bachman. Containing 150 prints documenting the four-legged land mammals of North America, the prints were lithographed on imperial folio-size paper and hand-colored by the studio of the distinguished Philadelphia printmaker John T. Bowen.
