Delight everyone on your greeting card list with these handsome Audubon Owls boxed note cards. Legendary naturalist-artist John James Audubon (1785-1851) rendered his birds in unparalleled life-size scale and captured them with all the vivid drama of their avian life. The five wise owls splendidly reproduced for our note cards characterize the essence of each bird in close up detail to reveal the magical personality of every knowing face. Included here are the Snowy Owl, Great Horned Owl, Great Gray Owl, Eastern Screech-owl, and Barn Owl.
John James Audubon is considered Americas first great watercolorist and foremost painter of wildlife. The New-York Historical Society holds all 435 watercolors for the double elephant folio The Birds of America (1827-38), engraved by Robert Havell Jr.
