  • Painting Description

    "Booby Gannet (plate CCVII); and [Thick-billed Murre] (plate CCXLV)" are two notable illustrations by John James Audubon, a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter. These works are part of his monumental series, "The Birds of America," which was published as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838. "The Birds of America" is celebrated for its detailed and lifelike illustrations of a wide range of bird species, many of which were being documented by Audubon for the first time.

    The "Booby Gannet" illustration, also known as Plate CCVII, depicts the bird, which is more commonly referred to today as the Northern Gannet (Morus bassanus), in a dynamic and naturalistic pose, showcasing Audubon's skill in capturing the vitality and essence of the birds he studied. The Northern Gannet is known for its striking appearance and long-distance foraging flights.

    The "Thick-billed Murre" illustration, or Plate CCXLV, represents another species with precision and artistic flair, highlighting the bird's distinctive features and natural habitat. The Thick-billed Murre (Uria lomvia), known for its diving ability and life in cold northern oceans, is rendered with the attention to detail that characterizes Audubon's work.

    Audubon's method involved extensive field observations and sometimes using wires to prop up the birds in natural positions, a technique that allowed him to create more dynamic representations than the stiff illustrations that were common at the time. His work on "The Birds of America" was a significant contribution to ornithology and art, influencing not only scientific study but also the conservation movement.

    "Booby Gannet (plate CCVII); and [Thick-billed Murre] (plate CCXLV)" exemplify Audubon's dedication to his craft and his deep appreciation for the avian world. These plates, like others in the series, were created using the aquatint engraving process and were hand-colored by professional colorists, making each print a unique piece of art. "The Birds of America" remains one of the most prized and celebrated ornithological works in history, with original editions highly sought after by collectors and institutions.
