Description: Looking at these four watercolors you are enjoying an experience similar to that of John James Audubon's (1785-1851) original subscribers to The Birds of America (1827-38). The watercolors are rotated on a quarterly basis to limit the potential damage caused by their exposure, ensuring that these national treasures are available to future generations.
