Male Wild Turkey (Plate I). A Perfect Recreation™ of the aquatint with original hand color. Drawn from nature by John James Audubon, 1827. 26” x 39”.
There’s a reason this painting hangs in some of the greatest homes in the world: it’s a rare privilege to have an object of such great beauty to enjoy every day. King George IV of England and King Charles I of France were among the original buyers. Now, we've perfectly re-created it for you.
This is Plate Number One of The Birds of America and, like the nine that follow it, was engraved and colored by William Lizars of Edinburgh, Scotland. The remaining 425 Audubon birds were produced in London by the famous collaboration of Robert Havell and Audubon.
"Absolutely perfect and magnificent". What Our Customers Say
The quality of ours far exceeds all previous Audubon print reproductions. Our proprietary process yields a resolution, or level of detail, more than ten times greater than the resolution the 2002 Oppenheimer, 1985 Princeton and 1971 Amsterdam editions. So we can perfectly re-create the amazingly lifelike impression of the original Audubons, because we alone are able to perfectly re-create with total clarity and sharpness the extremely fine detail of the original drawing and engraving. Audubon and Havell presented all the glorious detail that exists in nature – and we do, too.
