John James Audubon

In Una's former life, he was the director of one of the nation's leading art galleries for Early American maps, prints and paintings. John James Audubon's works, including his masterpiece Birds of America, were among many of the gallery's offerings. 

Today marks the 226th anniversary of John James Audubon's birthday. Una and I have his "American Black Bear" and "Swift Fox" prints in our dining room (the bears are an homage to our alma mater's mascot). The details of his works are beautiful - check them out here
