John James Audubon, the most celebrated American natural history artist, devoted his life to identifying and depicting the birds of North America.

The Quadrupeds, as Audubon envisioned, would complete his record of the animal life of North America. 

In 1843, Audubon made an important trip to the West, traveling up the Missouri River as far as the trading post Fort Union. What propelled him westward on that trip was an approach to art that would be echoed in the careers of later artists of the West.

Here we present a collection of works evoking the granduer of the West by John James Audubon followed by a selection of Western landscape paintings.

John James Audubon. Wild Turkey, Male. Published: London, 1827-1838.
The first illustration Audubon completed for his famous work “Birds of America”. Grand in it’s countenance, one can see why Benjamin Franklin wanted the Wild Turkey to be the national bird of the United States.
