BIRDS OF AMERICA
JOHN JAMES AUDUBON (1785 - 1851) PLATE
83 - Engraved by R. HAVELL
HOUSE WREN - Troglodytes ędon IMAGE REF: AUD020
The original painting (circa 1821) has the hat mysteriously suspended in
mid-air. The branch
was roughly drafted in by Audubon leaving Havell to complete the detail. This style of
image bears a striking similarity to that of Norman Rockwell, active over 120 years later.
Image is shown without the intrusive key numbers. We will contact you
about these when you order.
