In the 19th century it was the usual practice for bird illustrators to work exclusively from preserved specimens, but Audubon found this less than ideal.

Audubon’s Birds of America has long been regarded as one of the greatest books ever produced and perhaps the greatest contribution ever made of art in the service of science.

The giant energy of the man, and his power of achievement and accomplishment, give to him something of the epical force of a Walt Whitman or a Herman Melville.
