Offering of the Day: "The Carolina Parrot" John James Audubon (1785-1851)



“The Carolina Parrot”
From The Birds of America
Aquatint engraving with original hand color
Edinburgh and London, 1827-38


The Birds of America is the seminal work of John James Audubon and has been hailed as both a work of outstanding beauty and ornithological interest. Its pre-eminence was established by Audubon's extensive and meticulous study of every bird that he delineated, reproducing its image to life-size and within a natural setting. Audubon's masterpiece is undoubtedly the greatest work on birds ever produced.
