Bid for a Print

Three exceptional Audubon prints reproduced from a Birds of America folio

We are pleased to be able to offer these three really impressive prints that were produced in the USA in the 1960s on high quality art paper. They are large and would stand out in any room, and are offered in a new quality mount measuring 44cm x 55cm (actual image 33cm x 43cm) and cellophane wrapped for protection.

These are very collectable reproductions taken from a folio of John James Audubon’s outstanding four-volume work The Birds of America (originally produced in parts between 1827–38). The originals of these are absolutely priceless – and a complete set of the 435 lithographs sold for nearly $10 million in 2018.

A set of originals is kept in The National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. To see images of the originals of which we are offering these prints, see these links:
