Artist, birdwatcher, and conservationist John James Audubon (American, 1785–1851) captured North American birds’ spirited energy in their native habitats. A set of Audubon lithographs (1840–44) is a Museum treasure. Our paperweight is vibrantly colored and meticulously reproduced from Common Cardinal Grosbeak
(Plate 203), an original lithograph in the Museum’s collection.
