John James Audubon Sold at Auction Prices

Bird painter, Painter, Animal painter, b. 1785 - d. 1851

Born in Haiti in 1785, artist John James Audubon was raised in France, a place where his interest in nature began. Sent to America in 1803, his love of birds and his artistic talent coalesced. Known worldwide for his association with bird conservation, artist John James Audubon created lifelike drawings of birds using a true-to-life color palette. One of his favorite pastimes was hunting, but as a naturalist he was concerned with conservation, especially the increased destruction of bird habitats.

Eventually, he created Birds of America, a book containing 435 of John James Audubon's paintings compiled into prints. The prints depicted each of North America's known bird varieties at the time. The value of John James Audubon prints extend beyond market price, and his paintings and drawings continue to set the standard for avian artwork.

                    John James Audubon "Passenger Pigeon" Havel edition double elephant folio

                    Est: -

                    John James Audubon "Passenger Pigeon" Havel edition double elephant folio Havel double elephant edition "Passenger Pigeon" by John James Audubon. Lightly toned with good hand coloring. Sheet has been trimmed. Full sheet should be 39" x 26 ½". This example 29 5/8" x 24". This piece is perplexing in that several of the Audubon water fowl were reproduced with hand coloring in the earlier 20th century. What I have seen are not painted as well as the originals. Being trimmed this one does not have a water mark nor a plate mark. The water mark is often to the outside margins so that is less disturbing than the absence of a plate mark. That two could have been cut away though on the medium size images, which this qualifies, the plate mark is generally sited more to the interior. There is enough blank space remaining that a partial plate mark should survive. In this case none does. Plate size on medium sized compositions are generally 24" x 19" . See close up images of the excellence of the hand coloring which certainly is of a comparable execution of the Havel originals. Also observe a magnified view of the rag paper which too is of similar quality. The canvas back duck is an occasionally seen reproduction though the coloring falls way short of the pigeons or the original Havel of that particular bird. A quality Amsterdam edition was reproduced later in the 20th century though this example displays much more age than that series which can not be confused in this instance. Final thought is I cannot guarantee this an authentic Havel. Neither am I convinced it is later. Circa 1827-1838.

                    Audubon, Imperial Folio - Collared Peccary. 31

                    Est: $3,000 - $5,000

                    This exceptional folio lithograph is from John James Audubon's The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. It was part of the Imperial Folio Edition published between 1845 and 1851. Audubon and his son, John Woodhouse, drew all of the quadrupeds in the work. Victor Gifford Audubon drew the backgrounds for many of the prints. The print is a stone lithograph which features original hand-coloring completed by noted printer James T. Bowen of Philadelphia. Great care was taken in the lithography and hand-coloring of the print to give the animal fur a truly realistic appearance. Audubon worked on the quadrupeds for fifteen years and studied the animals in their natural habitats and collected skins. It was the first work of this size done on American quadrupeds and a landmark for natural science in America. Audubon detailed many frontier animals for the first time, and the work helped spark public interest in the natural flora and fauna of America. When he undertook the research for this publication, he wrote his collaborator Rev. James Bachman "I am growing old, but what of this? My spirits are as enthusiastical as ever, my legs full able to carry my body for ten years to come, and in about two of these I expect the illustrations out, and ere the following twelve months have elapsed, their histories studied, their descriptions carefully prepared and the book printed! Only think of the quadrupeds of America being presented to the World of Science by Audubon and Bachman." (Streshinsky, Audubon, p. 332) Quadrupeds would be his last major work and expedition. He completed half of the drawings before his health began to deteriorate, but it was a true collaboration with his son, John Woodhouse Audubon. John James Audubon served as "...the genius and guiding hand. Audubon was the person who conceived the projects and had the enthusiasm and determination to see them through. He was the artist, the author, the designer, and, when the time came, the salesman. As the success of the 'little work' grew, Audubon’s dominant role in the process became more apparent."
