In the #1830s, as the final plates were being completed for John James Audubon’s monumental #Birds of #America series, the #artist began to gather material for his second and equally ambitious undertaking.
.
Planning to complete the definitive #study of #American #wildlife, Audubon set out to #document the #animals of #NorthAmerica, and to present them in a format as #impressive and #sweeping as that he used for his birds. The result of the artist / #naturalist ’s years of field #research, #travel, and seemingly endless #study was the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, the outstanding work on American animals produced in the #19thcentury.
