Professionally Mounted Vintage Audubon Chromolithograph - Clapper Rail.
This print, selected from Audubon's works, was published around 1950 in the USA on cream-colored fine matt paper. It contains commentary on the reverse side describing the bird's appearance, habits, geographic range, etc.
The print has been professionally hinged onto a specially cut high quality warm white mat, and mounted onto a foam core backing. The overall mount is ready to frame, & has been deliberately sized to suit a standard frame, should you wish to buy one 'off the shelf' rather than have the print professionally framed.
These prints are wonderful on their own, or framed and hung together as a set.
Actual print size - 220 x 300mm
Mat window size - 204 x 280mm
Overall mat size 40 x 50cm - to suit 16 x 20" standard frames.
John James Audubon (1785-1851) was an orthinologist, naturalist, and painter, and is celebrated as America's dominant wildlife Artist in the 1800's. His extensive studies documented all types of American birds, and his illustrations depicted birds in their natural habitats. His major work, a color-plate book entitled 'The Birds of America' (1827–1839), is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed.
Please note that the prints on offer are genuine vintage or antique, & therefore being offered as 'one off's'. You will not find them readily available to buy, or on display in someone else home. This makes them special, but the downside is if you miss out on one that you have your eye on I may not be able to source it again for you. If you would like a bigger set, please contact me as I may have more available in the collection.
