  • Print Description

      American Flamingo is the result of when ornithology and art collide to produce this classic modernist piece. Painted by John James Audubon and depicts a captivating American Flamingo craning its neck towards the lagoon-lake. This highly detailed reproduction puts a heavy emphasis on the striking colour contrast between the pink hues of the single large flamingo and the neutral landscape where several smaller, subdued pink flamingos are viewed in the background to demonstrate the group formations of these majestic birds. American Flamingo draws the viewer in through the contrasting colour pigments, textures between the plumage of the flamingo, the water and the rocks and culminates these elements to produce a stunning vintage art print.

The Artist

JOHN JAMES AUDUBON

John James Audubon (1785 - 1851) was an American ornithologist, naturalist, and painter.  Audubon was notable for his extensive studies documenting all types of American birds and for his detailed illustrations that depicted native birds in their natural habitats and for having identified 25 new species during his career.

His major work, a color-plate book entitled The Birds of America (1827–1839) is considered one of the finest ornithological works ever completed. Audubon's influence on ornithology and natural history was far reaching, influencing all later ornithological works and artistry striving for Audubon's detailed realism and exceptionally high standards of accuracy.  The Birds of America is still considered one of the greatest examples of book-art in past and modern history.
