"On the 7th of May, 1832, while sailing from Indian Key, one of the numerous islets that skirt the south-eastern coast of the Peninsula of Florida, I for the first time saw a flock of Flamingoes. It was on the afternoon of one of those sultry days which, in that portion of the country, exhibit towards evening the most glorious effulgence that can be conceived. "
In AMERICAN FLAMINGO, famed ornithologist and prolific artist John James Audubon captured this striking specimen of a bird craning its long neck to drink from the water.
Our fine art print delivers vivid colors and bright pink. We use the same standard as museums, galleries, and other fine art printers across the globe.
Chromolithography printed is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto a high-quality paper. This incredible degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients allows our prints to appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints.
Our high-quality paper is acid-free with a smooth surface.
About the Artist:
John Audubon (1785 – 1851) produced an immense body of work, including over 435 paintings of birds. America’s primary wildlife artist for more than half a century, Audubon’s childhood fascination with birds extended into his adulthood, and he spent days and weeks on the frontier, amassing an enormous portfolio of life-size bird drawings.
