The Victoria Gallery & Museum of the University
of Liverpool holds a unique collection of original works by the
celebrated French-American nature painter John James Audubon (1785
- 1851). This talk explores Audubon's background in America, and
his urge to document all types of American birds and depict them in
their natural habitats. It explains how Audubon came to Liverpool
in an attempt to print his now world-famous book The Birds of
America (1827 - 38).
About the speaker: Matthew Clough is Director of the
