Beautiful original from out of print books. From the Leipzig Edition of John James Audubon's Birds of America printed in Leipzig, Germany in 1973. The Leipzig Edition of Audubon was printed using a form of lithography that put drops of ink on the page with no defined edges to increase the quality of the printing. Printed on a heavy stock cream colored paper this publication is limited to 1000 copies.
This illustration demonstrates his passion for ornithology and his desire to capture the essence of these amazing creatures. The daytime setting further enhances the natural beauty of this species, allowing us to glimpse into their world filled with wonder and vitality. Centrocercus urophasianus, members of the order Galliformes, are part of nature's diverse tapestry that we are fortunate enough to witness in art. With a delicate balance between realism and artistic interpretation, this print serves as a reminder that our planet is home to countless extraordinary animals, like the greater sage grouse, each of which deserves our admiration and protection.
