John James Audubon: Drawn From Nature



John James Audubon's Carolina Parrots illustration

John James Audubon: Drawn From Nature, a documentary about the artist who spent 18 years painting life-size portraits of every bird known to exist in the United States in the early 19th century, begins airing on most PBS stations tomorrow, July 25. Looks fascinating.



It's interesting that Anthropologie currently has a series of bird prints inspired by drawings from 18th century traveling biologists, shown above.

This room from Anthropologie is wonderful! I can't decide about the wall color, but everything else! The placement of the prints on the wall is very interesting. Love it!

Katie, I think the wall coloring makes the room! It's so unusual. Birds are the coral of 2007, but I still want some! I going to check their web site out about these pictures, I think they are wonderful. Thanks!
