About the Exhibition:
Before Audubon: Alexander Wilson's Birds of the United States - beginning April 21st

In 1808, Scottish-born poet and amateur naturalist Alexander Wilson (1766–1813) began publishing American Ornithology; or The Natural History of the Birds of the United States. Wilson’s impressive achievement inspired John James Audubon to publish his much better-known Birds of America (1827–38). Though Wilson had no background as an artist, he taught himself drawing and illustrated his nine volumes of careful observations of the birds of the northeastern U.S. with 76 hand-colored engraved and etched plates of 314 species—26 of which he was the first to describe.

Fourth in the Toledo Museum of Art’s biennial exhibitions focused on bird-themed art, the exhibition coincides with local birding festival the Biggest Week in American Birding, which brings tens of thousands of birders to the area to observe the spring migration of songbirds. It will be the first time that the Toledo Museum of Art’s first edition of Wilson’s pioneering multi-volume publication has been exhibited.

Before Audubon: Alexander Wilson’s Birds of the United States is supported in part by 2018 Exhibition Program Sponsor ProMedica.
