Canada's Audubon

North American Wildlife Drawings by William Pope

“[I]n the morning I went out shooting the rest of the day I was occupied in painting a bird – these were my two principal amusements during the [time in Upper Canada].”

- William Pope

William Pope is universally considered Canada’s first artist-naturalist. His detailed drawings of birds and other native fauna are often compared to John James Audubon’s works. This collection comes directly from the art- ist’s family and is the most extensive grouping of Pope watercolors in private hands. Other examples can be found in the Baldwin Collection of Canadiana at the Toronto Public Library.
