Audubon Exhibit Highlights Quadrupeds

"Spectacular Achievements: Audubon's Animals of North America," an exhibit designed to showcase John James Audubon's illustrations for his Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, will be staged at the William D. Cannon Art Gallery in Carlsbad, CA through December 16.

It's true, Audubon's quadrupeds don't have the same visual power of the birds, but the images are still impressive. The article (which does a pretty good job of backgrounding the quadrupeds project) notes that the exhibit is touring nationwide, so if you're not in CA, maybe it'll come to your neck of the woods in the future.
