  • Painting Description

    "Scarlet Ibis (plate Cccxcvii)" is a renowned illustration by the celebrated naturalist and painter John James Audubon, featured in his seminal work "The Birds of America." This ambitious project, published between 1827 and 1838, aimed to document and illustrate the diverse avian species of the United States. Audubon's meticulous attention to detail and artistic prowess have made "The Birds of America" one of the most significant ornithological works ever produced.

    The Scarlet Ibis, scientifically known as Eudocimus ruber, is a striking bird native to the tropical regions of South America and the Caribbean. Its vivid red plumage, which intensifies with age, makes it one of the most visually captivating birds in the world. Audubon's depiction of the Scarlet Ibis captures the bird's elegance and vibrant coloration with remarkable accuracy, showcasing his ability to blend scientific observation with artistic expression.

    Plate Cccxcvii is part of the later volumes of "The Birds of America," which consists of 435 hand-colored, life-size prints made from engraved plates. Each illustration in the series was created using a combination of watercolor, pastel, and ink, and was printed on large sheets of paper known as the "double elephant folio," measuring approximately 39 by 26 inches. This grand scale allowed Audubon to portray the birds in their natural size and habitat, providing a lifelike representation that was unprecedented at the time.

    Audubon's work on the Scarlet Ibis, like his other illustrations, involved extensive field observations and specimen collection. He traveled widely across North America, often enduring harsh conditions, to study birds in their natural environments. His dedication to capturing the essence of each species is evident in the lifelike poses and intricate details of his illustrations.

    "Scarlet Ibis (plate Cccxcvii)" not only serves as a valuable scientific record but also as a testament to Audubon's artistic genius and his enduring legacy in the fields of ornithology and natural history. The illustration continues to be admired for its beauty and precision, reflecting the rich biodiversity of the avian world and the importance of preserving it for future generations.
