  • Painting Description

    "Little Screech Owl – Strix Asio" is a notable illustration by John James Audubon, a French-American naturalist, ornithologist, and painter, renowned for his detailed and dramatic representations of American birds in their natural habitats. This artwork is part of his seminal work, "The Birds of America," which was published as a series of life-sized prints between 1827 and 1838. The Little Screech Owl, also known as the Eastern Screech Owl (Megascops asio), is depicted with meticulous attention to detail and vivid coloration, characteristic of Audubon's artistic style.

    Audubon's depiction of the Little Screech Owl showcases the bird perched on a tree branch, often with a backdrop of a nocturnal or crepuscular setting, emphasizing the owl's natural behavior and environment. The illustration captures the owl's distinct features, such as its camouflaged plumage, large eyes, and ear tufts, which contribute to its recognition as a master of stealth and a skilled nocturnal predator.

    As part of "The Birds of America," the Little Screech Owl illustration contributed to the 19th-century understanding and appreciation of North American avifauna. Audubon's work was groundbreaking for its combination of scientific accuracy and artistic mastery, and it played a significant role in the study of ornithology and the conservation movement.

    The Little Screech Owl illustration, like others in the collection, was created using the labor-intensive hand-engraved copperplate printing process and then hand-colored. Audubon's dedication to creating life-sized bird images meant that the prints were produced on what he called "double elephant folio" paper, which was the largest available at the time.

    Today, "Little Screech Owl – Strix Asio" is not only an important historical record of American wildlife but also a celebrated piece of art. Original prints of Audubon's works are highly valued by collectors and institutions, and the images continue to influence wildlife artists and conservationists around the world. The illustration is a testament to Audubon's legacy as one of the most influential figures in the fields of ornithology and natural history illustration.
