John James Audubon : “Peregrine Falcons (Duck Hawks)” (c. 1827)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Combining his interests in nature and art, Audubon sought to depict every species of native North American birds posed in action with elements of their habitats. His efforts resulted in the four-volume publication The Birds of America, which contains more than 435 hand-colored engravings after his watercolor renderings. Occasionally the artist, sometimes with the help of assistants, made oil versions of his watercolors, of which this image of two falcons feasting on fresh duck carcasses is an early and especially lively example.
