September 8, 2014—John James Audubon’s growth into an expert ornithologist and artist is evident in a Houghton Library collection of 114 drawings, one of only two such extensive collections of his early work. Created between 1805 and 1821, they are some of the earliest existing Audubon originals. The drawings show the development of his technique and his progression from amateur to famed naturalist. The vibrant works are digitized and available online. Read the full story in the Harvard Gazette.
