Curator Roberta Olson discusses John James Audubon's watercolor study of the Blue Heron for The Birds of America.
Audubon's Aviary: Parts Unknown (on exhibit March 21-May 26, 2014) will consider John James Audubon as an established artist-naturalist, a world citizen, and a celebrity in an expanding nation. Most of the watercolors in Parts Unknown (studies for Havell plates 176-305) depict water birds, which are among Audubon's most spectacular and largest birds, with numerous studies begun during his southeastern explorations and on his Labrador Expedition.
